US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken has promised TOPNEWS to fight back “Russian disinformation” about coronavirus vaccines.
“I share your concern about incorrect and incorrect information (about the vaccine) that is published, including by Russia. This is extremely dangerous, in addition to being extremely wrong and ultimately directed against them (Russia), because … they themselves are not will be completely safe until the whole world is vaccinated, “Blinken said at a congressional hearing in response to a question about” Russian disinformation. ”
“We will stand firm, speak firmly and fight back firmly when we see such things,” Blinken added.
He added that the United States is actively funding efforts to combat “disinformation”, including through the so-called Global Center for Interaction under the State Department.
Earlier, the State Department accused four unnamed Russian online platforms of spreading misinformation about vaccines. The US also said that Russian intelligence was behind it.
Russia has denied allegations of any misinformation regarding the coronavirus in the past.
