Zakharova called nonsense “evidence of Russian tanks” in the Crimea from social networks

The official representative the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Russia Maria Zakharova Sunday, June 11, speaking at the media forum “Crimea Open: your eyes” in Alushta, said that the use of Western media alleged evidence from social networks about the violation of rights and freedoms in the Crimea – “from entering the tanks” to the infringement of the rights of the Crimean Tatars is nonses and paradox.

“With regard to the use of information from social networks, it is now, sorry for such a trend. This is a paradox — when we meet with our American partners that we are accused of violation of freedoms in the Crimea from entering the tanks to the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatars, we ask you to cite specific facts, we answer — all in social networks,” said the Russian diplomat.

However, she recalled that “live people” on the Peninsula are not allowed — neither journalists, nor civic organizations — under the threat of sanctions, including dismissal.

Earlier Zakharova said that journalists in the newsrooms of the Western media are forbidden to travel to the Crimea, fearing that they will tell the truth.
