Alexei Chepa, a State Duma deputy, said the Russian Foreign Ministry should sue The New York Times for libel. This was reported by RIA FAN.
An earlier article published an article stating that Russia was responsible for the killing of military coalitions by Afghan militants. Allegedly secretly offering a reward for this.
“NYT also said that Donald Trump (US President) was informed about this, but he said he did not receive such reports and called it absurd. All this is a continuation of the electoral delirium in the United States. But we need to sue the newspaper for libel, ”Chepa said.
According to the deputy, the United States has long resorted to such actions because of the struggle, first with the USSR, and now with Russia.
“The Americans trained more than 30 thousand fighters in Afghanistan, among them was Osama Bin Laden. The Americans supported the Taliban, but later their relations with terrorists began to deteriorate, ”Chepa said.
