Russian Foreign Ministry Accuses Euronews of 'Discrediting Itself'

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova has lashed out at the English language branch of the Euronews channel, calling their work a “blow from within” for “discrediting” the news outlet.

Euronews had mistakenly used an image from a fake Twitter account for Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in one of its TV reports, the RBC news website reported Tuesday.

Zakharova posted a screen shot of the TV report and the fake Twitter account onto her Facebook page, where she wrote, “Everything is great apart from one thing – Sergei Lavrov does not have a Twitter account.”

The tweet did not appear on the Russian language version of the article, and has since been removed from the English language edition.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
