Russia's Foreign Ministry Slams US Media: 'Colossal Bias …Lack of Independent Thinking'

Russia's Foreign Ministry Slams US Media: 'Colossal Bias …Lack of Independent Thinking'

President Donald Trump talks to reporters during a meeting with Dr. Henry Kissinger, former Secretary of State and National Security Advisor under President Richard Nixon, in the Oval Office of the White House, Wednesday, May 10, 2017, in Washington.

Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said USA journalists asking questions of Lavrov after an Oval Office meeting with President Trump seemed "unaware of how silly it was to ask the foreign minister of a another country about the reasons for certain personnel changes in their own country".

Asked about the same issue again, Lavrov said, "I thought we were all grow-ups here".

USA officials - including prominent GOP lawmakers such as Sen.

The chummy photos left some observers agog, particularly coming a day after the president fired FBI Director James Comey, who had been running the investigation into whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian officials.

During those conversations, Trump said he asked Comey if he was the subject of an FBI investigation.

"We hope that despite the current political situation they (US mass media - TASS) will stay loyal to the principles of profession and journalistic solidarity", the RJU said.

Though some of the images suggested Trump was clearly aware he was being photographed, the White House reportedly tried to blame the Russians for the photos, saying it did not anticipate the photos would be posted online.




With raids and special forces from the USA -led coalition, the SDF are advancing on Raqqa, Daesh's base of operations in Syria, to ultimately take the city.

"President Trump said publicly a number of times what he thought about the allegations that we supposedly interfered in your domestic affairs", he continued.

Lavrov said no-one had uncovered "a single shred of evidence" of the supposed interference.

The foreign minister blamed the Obama administration for the poor relations between the USA and Russian Federation.

The State Department did not also report on an earlier meeting between Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson and Mr. Lavrov. "The previous administration did everything to undermine the basis of it. Trump has shown that he wants to establish constructive and productive relations with Russian Federation".

As for the timing of Lavrov's meeting, it was scheduled well in advance of Comey's firing.

Ankara strongly opposes USA support of the YPG, viewing it as the Syrian extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party, which has waged a three-decade insurgency inside Turkey. Also, Trump has expressed desire to improve ties with Russian Federation.
