Lavrov: Deutsche Welle Admitted Incorrectness of Its Actions During Protests in Moscow
“We invited representatives of Deutsche Welle, the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, Maria Vladimirovna Zakharova, spoke with them. They admitted that in general this was not very correct in the context of the events that took place in Moscow at that time. It’s one thing to cover them, but It’s another matter to prepare them. In fact, they participated in the preparation of these protest, unauthorized actions, prompting people and even inviting people to them somewhere", Lavrov said. “This is probably not a function of the media”, he added.
The minister also said that Russia does not consider it necessary and possible to introduce any restrictions on Western media, including Deutsche Welle.
