The Russian Embassy urged the US to leave the Russian media alone

55
Russia urges the United States not to create another annoying factor in relations between the two countries, the Russian embassy in Washington said in a statement.




The Russian side has repeatedly stated that forcing the Russian media in the United States to change the status of a foreign agent can significantly complicate their work and create problems for journalistic groups ... We urge not to create another irritant in bilateral relations and to allow the media to work calm
quotes a document RIA News.

The embassy added that the US “law on foreign agents is applied selectively and politically motivated,” and the pressure on the Russian media does not stop.

On Tuesday, State Department spokesman Heather Nauert said that the possible registration of the Russian TV channel RT and the Sputnik agency as foreign agents in the United States would not affect their ability to transmit information.

The Russian diplomatic mission did not agree with this position and recalled that Moscow had already promised to take retaliatory mirror measures.

“By the way, the American mainstream, which has launched a campaign to slander RT and labeling it, is not far behind,” the embassy added.

“In Russia there really is a rule similar to the American law on foreign agents. When developing it, the experience of the leading Western countries was taken into account. The main difference between Russian law and American law is its universality. As practice has shown, the American law is applied strictly selectively and politically motivated. Confirmation of this is the absence in the US list of foreign agents of the largest mass media financed by Western states, ”the diplomats explained.

In general, the example of what is happening with the Russian press in the United States shows that the words and deeds of the American authorities with regard to media freedom differ. In the anti-Russian fuse in Washington, they completely forgot about the principles enshrined in domestic legislation and international legal documents, the observance of which other countries here like to remind,
the statement said.

Recall, Washington is trying to complicate the work of the RT television channel as much as possible by obliging the Russian media to register as a foreign agent, as well as arranging a congressional hearing on the possible impact through social networks on US electoral processes.

        Yes, it’s ridiculous for everyone to look at the miserable bleating of our superiors about “RT”. For a long time they would have searched in all the enemy offices of the SMRAD on the territory of Russia, would have arrested some Amer geeks and magazines for a couple of days ... They would have shut up the enemy-liberal SMRAD for the pro-Western fifth column for two or three days. Yes, a lot of things can be revealing to the impudent boorish antics of the Anglo-humans. Let the western animals sing and weed for a week, but they will think with a head who they can crush the loaf of.

    Russia seems to like to go behind. Wait for the states to do the next dirty trick, and then urge them not to do it. But they know in the Foreign Ministry that this will not work, but they can’t do anything. They have such a closed circle. They are waiting for everyone to Trump will become "right."

                  I explain for those who are in the tank. The oligarchs keep money, immovables and the like over the hill, their children study over the hill, and they are like the ruling class in our country. Factories, newspapers, steamboats belong to them, they manage state corporations, own banks. Now, if they take money from foreign banks, expel their children in the cold with a bare ass, then the lever of pressure on the ruling class in Russia is lost. The passage about the money of Putin and Lukashenko did not understand. If they have these ofigiards, then I think they do not store them in foreign banks. And here you are, excuse me, you wag loin with an amplitude of a meter.

          And this is not the limit. The liberde has, for a long time, been bombed powerfully on this subject.
          In Russia, they threaten to limit the activities of Radio Liberty and Voice of America in response to the assignment by the US administration of the propaganda channel Russia Today the status of "foreign agent", but an increase in their rights in the Russian Federation would be a symmetrical response. Such an opinion was expressed by Russian journalist Sergei Parkhomenko on the air of the program "The Essence of Events" on "Echo of Moscow".
          “They immediately started saying that in response the activities of those media in Russia that are completely openly funded will be banned, - it’s absolutely written, so to speak, on each of their windows - by state or non-state, but state-controlled funds in the USA “This is primarily the Voice of America, this is Radio Liberty and a number of others,” he said.

          The bloody regime is merciless.

              In de Volkskrant, one of the leading Dutch newspapers, material appeared that tells about Muscovites eating rats. According to the authors of the article, the standard of living in the capital has fallen so much that the locals have no choice but to switch to rat meat.

              A large article with the title “Russia is moving to rats” was devoted to a seemingly completely harmless occasion: a restaurant of South Russian cuisine was opened in Moscow, which served a lot of delicacies, including nutria. Western journalists considered it a nutria as a rat.

              The author of the article explains that the food embargo led Russia to such a “deplorable state” - the Moscow middle class began to feel a terrible need for meat and was forced to eat anything.

    If you argue with a fool, then automatically fall to his level. The "butts" of Russia and the USA are watched with interest by the whole world. Therefore, we do not need to “cut off the shoulder”, but make a “response” based on international legal norms in the diplomatic relations of states, then this will be clear, convincing and an example for others.

      There is no need to argue with D. Fool, it must be put in place. I have heard this many times that (I quote we need not to "chop off the shoulder" But none of those urging to do so did not specifically explain what would happen if once all the same, "off the shoulder". The reference to international legal norms does not count, since no one takes them into account in important matters, and at the level of chatter they slander us anyway. It seems to me if there is nothing to answer, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is better to remain silent - and that’s a shame

        So it was with the USSR. Diplomacy is not a showdown of "fraternities."
        Just one example. So, 07.10.1952/29/XNUMX B-XNUMX USA violated the border of the USSR in the district of about. Yuri, in this case, opened fire on our two fighters raised to intercept him. The Soviet government, represented by the USSR Ministry of Foreign Affairs, sent a note of protest to the United States. The US rejected the protest, citing that their plane did not violate the USSR border. That's all ! Ours, even then, didn’t wave a saber.

          Here I have the keyword SHARE. The USSR Ministry of Foreign Affairs never stooped to statements that contained the PROMISES of an answer that did not follow in public. For diplomacy of the USSR was characteristic fulfillment of promises. A hundred times they will say no, or they will not say anything, but once they have said, they will do it. The protest note, I am sure, did not contain promises of a response to US actions. I admit that some actions on our part do not occur publicly and are unknown to us. But then the controversy should not occur publicly. I note that the rules of logic are the same for people who lie on the couch, sit on the couch, walk the dog, go to work, etc. I'm ashamed for promising an answer

    I quote: Russia calls on the United States not to create another annoying factor in relations between the two countries Russia calls, but America obeys? I’m afraid that if America does not obey Russia, then our Foreign Ministry, in the person of Zakharova, will burst into taunting comments and convince us that the answer will certainly come. And then when you call, we’ll hear “wait for an answer, wait for an answer, wait for an answer ...” They will begin to convince us. that the lack of an answer is a smart move, because all responsibility lies with the United States. Only a question: but they will agree to bear this responsibility. But Putin assured that a mirror response will follow. before the elections, it’s even profitable for him to impede enemy propaganda. Only - wait and see.

    Nobody likes the truth, and a country like the USA is soaked in lies. From creation to the present day. And in the future, too, so that only the grave will correct the hunchback.
