Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of the Russian Federation to the USA Anatoly Antonov said that Russia is ready to help America in fighting the coronavirus, and also answered the question of what “in the American press increasingly began to publish materials about the dysfunctional situation with coronavirus in Russia.”
The answer was published on the official website of the Russian Embassy in Washington in Facebook.
“Concern the emergence of false information in the American media about the alleged inefficiency of the Russian government to combat a new pneumonia. Made ridiculous references to some “pseudo-experts” who rely in judgment only taken out of context the statements of the Russian officials. There is a rough attempt to switch public attention from the US with a difficult situation with the coronavirus in the country on the situation in other States. Is clumsy and crude, with circulating lies”, – said the Ambassador of the Russian Federation.
He added that the fact that the number of infected COVID-19 in Russia is at an all time low, speaks about the efficiency of actions of the Russian leadership.
“Unacceptable speculation on bankruptcy of our system of diagnosis. Our test kits have shown its high quality in China, Iran, and transferred to Italy. Ordinary Americans should know – Russia if necessary is ready to help and the United States, as was repeatedly offered assistance in fighting fires in California – said Antonov. – Pandemic COVID-19 – a global threat requiring a joint response.”
