The Kremlin ordered Russian state-controlled media to reduce positive coverage of US President Donald trump.
According to media reports, this is evidence of the concerns of the Russian authorities about the fact that the new US administration will treat Russia is worse than previously expected.
The existence of the order also wrote the journalist Konstantin Eggert in his column on the website of the German edition of Deutsche Welle.
“A friend who works in the holding VGTRK – it includes the TV channel “Russia” – told me the 15th of February we received a instruction manual (which, in turn, apparently was instructed by the Kremlin). Its essence boils down to a short phrase:” trump is no more “, – the journalist noted.
In turn, the press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov said that these reports are all “duck”.
According to Konstantin Eggert, soon the main Russian state television channel will bring coverage of events in the United States of America to a minimum.
One of the interlocutors Bloomberg said that the Kremlin has linked this decision with the fact that the Russian population has lost interest in the change of power in the United States. But in fact the reason, according to the source, was that in the popular stories and discussions about trump mentioned the topics, which the Kremlin does not wish to speak.”
We will remind, the President of the United States Donald trump is expecting that Russia will return Crimea to Ukraine, and actively join de-escalate the situation in the Donbas.
However, the press Secretary noted that the President of the United States “fully expects the possibility of establishing relations with Russia, unlike previous administrations in the solution of many problems facing the international community …”
Earlier, White house spokesman Sean Spicer said that the US does not intend to lift sanctions against Russia in relation to Crimea.
