Russia: Twitter's ban on Russian media demonstrates its «absolute dependence on US» — Zakharova

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said that Twitter's ban on Russian media demonstrates the social media organisation's «absolute dependence on the US», when speaking from the weekly briefing in Moscow on Thursday. Twitter's decision to stop advertising from RT and Sputnik accounts comes amid the ongoing US investigation into Moscow's alleged meddling in the US election. In... Еще light of this decision, Zakharova said, «Washington's policy for further degradation of US-Russian relations is regrettable. This is absolutely a short-sighted policy, fraught with negative consequences, including towards the United States itself.» In a defence of Russia Today, one of the media outlets targeted by Twitter's ban she said, «all those accusations that we have seen and heard about Russia Today are simply baseless, we have not received any supporting materials on this topic. Any journalist certainly has the right to make mistakes and certainly correct their mistakes.»
