Joke of the head of the Russian foreign Ministry treated the message of the Washington Post that the President of the United States Donald trump during talks at the White house on may 10 handed Sergei Lavrov a “top-secret information” about the plans of the group “Islamic state” (banned in Russia) to blow up a passenger plane.
Thus the American leader has compromised the “crucial source of intelligence” from Israel. The trump said that he had every right to share with Russia information relating to counter-terrorism.
Earlier, Lavrov said that the American media reminiscent of the famous Soviet joke that “the newspaper “Pravda” in which there is no Izvestia, the newspaper “Izvestia”, in which there is no truth.”
Russian President Vladimir Putin, in turn, called the scandal of the conversation Lavrov and trump’s “political schizophrenia” and joked that he would punish the Russian foreign Minister for what he didn’t tell him about the obtained secret information.
