Commenting on the report of the leadership of the microblogging service Twitter in the U.S. Senate on the financial activities of RT TV channel Margarita Simonyan called the disclosed information is paradoxical.
“The management of Twitter announced in Congress the monstrous information. It turns out our TV station spent money on your advertising campaign! Like a normal of media institutions in the world. Now we have candidly to confess in the fact that spending money on advertising at airports, in taxis, on billboards, online, on television and radio… somehow did not think that in a country of developed democracy that a conventional advertising media may be suspicious or malicious activity. By the way, the same campaign in the Russian segment of Twitter are the American media,” she said.
