The Russian authorities have information about information provocations being prepared against the state regarding the fight against coronavirus.
This was stated by Russian President Vladimir Putin, opening a meeting of the board of the Federal Security Service (FSB) on Wednesday.
“We understand that solving global problems can only be achieved by joining efforts. Nevertheless, you know [that] a lot of attempts have been made, are being made, and I thank you for the information that you convey to the political leadership of the country that some provocations are planned in this area,” the head of state said, referring to the attempts question Russia’s achievements in the fight against coronavirus.
Putin stressed that a targeted information campaign is being waged against the Russian state with categorical and unsubstantiated accusations on a whole range of issues. He noted that even absurd, anecdotal conspiracy theories are being used, including those related to Russia’s achievements in the field of medicine and the fight against coronavirus.
