Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told reporters on Friday that the US, which is frustrated over the Moscow-Ankara accord on the Idlib settlement, uses any pretext to promote anti-Russian hysteria.

She said that the Ministry has paid attention to “the intensification of contacts between American politicians and the quasi-humanitarian organisation White Helmets operating in Syria”.

“Such contacts usually end up with big problems in the region in the form of provocations and provocative actions. On 17 March, US Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Biegun met the White Helmets leader despite restrictions on contacts with foreigners introduced by the State Department in connection with the spread of the coronavirus”, Zakharova said.

She also recalled that on 11 March, the White Helmets leader delivered a speech in the US Senate, in what was preceded by the group’s representatives meeting the US Special Representative for Syria near the Turkish-Syrian border.

According to her, these meetings took place against the backdrop of Washington’s new anti-Russian information campaign over the situation in the Idlib de-escalation zone.

“Of course, it is surprising that the White Helmets, which position themselves exclusively as a humanitarian organisation, are again at the centre of the West’s information manipulations that are aimed at distorting the real situation in Idlib […]. It seems that ​​the possible implementation of the Russian-Turkish agreements, and the very idea of ​​the Idlib de-escalation zone, causes such irritation in Washington that they are ready to use any excuse to unleash anti-Russian hysteria and undermine Syrian political settlement”, Zakharova emphasised.

Russia-Turkey agreements are just bullshit. They are only good for the terrorists and Turkey (NATO member), and Russia knows it.

Oh, c’mon, everybody knows that the Idlib agreement is going nowhere and is just used by Turkey as a deception to avid annihilation to its jihadis/ghazis/proxies while they reload… When it comes to White Helmets, only pure idiots in the west have been fooled by their biases. There is no McCarthy-styled anti-Russian hysteria even if some are promoting a cold war v2.0 paranoia for the sole purpose of avoiding their arms programs to be cancelled and well, with Russia introducing hundreds of new weapons systems and widely advertising these, Russia should not be surprised when it speaks about a nuclear-propelled… Read more »

There was not such a Chinese intent of cover up of COVD19. This virus was put in China by unknown people, that is my opinion, but I lack of evidence right now.

Undermine ? All those Turkey-Russia ceasefires agreements smell bullshit by themselves, they do not need to be undermines at all. such agreements have been always useful for Turkey’s terrorists and Turkey itself. Now, Turkey is moving much more heavy weapons inside Syria to continue its destruction.

Al parecer a EE.UU. no le interesa sus ciudadanos, en estos momentos está golpeando la pandemia COVID-19 y solo le interesa seguir financiando la muerte en Siria, al imperio poco le importa la vida de la humanidad, ordena a sus vasallos europeos a seguir con el bloqueo a Irán, las sanciones a Cuba y Venezuela, además ordena negar el préstamo de parte de FMI al país llanero.
