The European official pointed out that “lies circulate faster than the truth”.
For “mass coverage” of the Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov the European Union’s foreign policy chief complained to the western media, Joseph Borel. The European official pointed out that “lies circulate faster than the truth”.
Speaking to Spanish radio station Cadena SER on Tuesday, he complained that Lavrov is getting more attention in the Western media.
“Lavrov is going to Africa and trying to convince Africans that sanctions are to blame for everything that is happening … and all the Western media are repeating it,” Borrell told the radio station, according to RT World.
“I am going to Africa to say the opposite, that sanctions have nothing to do with this and nobody is covering them,” he added. He further criticized the media’s attention to Lavrov, saying there is a tendency to give space to the “enemy”.
The EU’s foreign policy chief is less popular than Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, a Kremlin spokesman quipped to reporters on Thursday Dmitry Peskov.
“He is indeed less popular than Lavrov, he has no chance in this matter,” the Kremlin spokesman said, commenting on Borel’s remarks.
