US journalists, who have been making groundless accusations against Russia of the 2016 US presidential election meddling, should now apologize to the domestic and Russian audience, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Tuesday evening, ONA reports citing ITAR-TASS.
"We are now referring to a team of propagandists… who style themselves as journalists - now they need to make their apologies. I’m not speaking about their feelings toward [US President Donald] Trump, the decision on whether they should apologize to him is their domestic matter. However, all this media ragtag, which has been at the forefront of anti-Russian news reporting in the United States, will need to apologize to the US audience and, naturally, to the Russian [audience], to the whole country," she said during the ’60 minutes’ TV show on the Rossiya-1 channel.
She said that Moscow would analyze anti-Russian propaganda reports and TV show footage, in which the media tried to persuade the US audience of Trump’s non-existent ties with Russia, and will forward them to international organizations for further analysis.
"Everything will be duly compiled and send wherever needed, to the OSCE and all other organizations, and will be made public for the general audience. I think the world should know its heroes," she said.
