The official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova invited leading American TV channel CNN Christiane Amanpour to come to Syria to interview the famous “boy from Aleppo”. Last year the photo of the victim during an air RAID child spread through the world media as “proof” of the crimes of the Syrian regime and allied Russia.
Zakharova recalled that in October 2016 Amanpour, who interviewed the foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Lavrov, showed him the picture of the Omran. The journalist then called the actions of the official Damascus “a war crime”.
The representative of the foreign Ministry in this regard, invited presenter, since she at one time made this story into the public space, now to go to Syria to interview Omran, reports RIA Novosti.
“Maybe she will have enough courage, journalism, professional ethics and human conscience, it (the story – “MK”) and terminate?” asked Zakharov.
We will remind, recently the boy’s father gave an interview to the media and said that the militants used his child for propaganda without parental consent. This man stated that he supports Bashar Assad and was able to return to Aleppo soon after the town was liberated by Syrian government forces.
Previously Zakharov suggested the Finnish journalist to go to Chechnya and see for yourself, is oppressed in the Republic of gays or not. After he refused the visit, foreign Ministry spokesman accused the reporter of cowardice.
