The Russian ambassador in Wasington: Disinformation from the US media

ROME, Feb 20 (Askanews) – “There is no Russian invasion of Ukraine, and there are no plans to carry it out.” This was stated by the Russian ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Antonov, guest of the program “Face the Nation” on the American channel CBS. The text of the interview was published by the website of the broadcaster and the Russian embassy on Facebook. “You know, there was a lot of fake news – he said – in the media and in many American channels that today we will start the invasion, and I would like to stress that there is no plan to start a war. We don’t want a war.” Over and over again, I would say – “We have our legitimate right to have our forces wherever we want on Russian soil, on Russian soil. And I would say that we do not pose a threat to anyone. We do not pose a threat to the United States. We do not pose a threat to Ukraine. It is very easy to solve this crisis,” the Russian diplomat stressed. If you persuade Kiev to come to the negotiating table with Lugansk and the people of Donbass, there will be no fighting, there will be peace, and there will be no casualties. It’s that easy. But for the Russian Federation, we have great concern about the activities of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO, ed.). I would like to tell you that the forces of this bloc have reached the Russian border.”
