The Russian Embassy in the United States called on the Bloomberg news agency to apologize to its readers for publishing misinformation about the level of confidence in Russian President Vladimir Putin among the population. The Russian diplomatic mission announced this in her Facebook account.
Diplomats criticized the published material on Putin’s rating. In it, citing VTsIOM, a schedule is built according to which the current president’s figures are 27 percent. At the same time, the real level of public confidence in Putin is 67.9 percent.
“There is a lasting impression that articles in Bloomberg are written to promote fake graphs and create stable false visual images about the“ negative dynamics ”in Russia,” Russian representatives emphasized.
They also noted that Bloomberg, posting such materials, shows complete disrespect to its readers, and urged the agency to publish these figures.
Earlier, the Russian Embassy in the United States demanded an apology from Bloomberg over an article on the coronavirus epidemic in Russia. Diplomats indicated that the agency, citing the World Bank, had given incorrect information on the number of hospital beds in the country.
