China accused Bloomberg of lies and provocations against Beijing and Moscow

china leader mask covid19The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China called a false publication in the media that Chinese President Xi Jinping appealed to Russian President Vladimir Putin with a request on Ukraine.

Earlier, Bloomberg published an article claiming that the Chinese president allegedly asked his Russian counterpart not to invade Ukraine during the Beijing Olympics.

"The relevant publication is an absolute lie," said a representative of the ministry, his words are quoted by RIA Novosti.

The ministry stressed that such statements are aimed not only at provocation against the two countries, but also at undermining the Olympic Games.

As the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova noted, the Bloomberg article is "no longer fake, it is already an information special operation of the relevant American services" with the help of this media.

Earlier, Bloomberg has already been noticed in spreading false data about Russia. In early December, the agency, citing anonymous sources, reported that Moscow plans to attack Ukraine from three directions: from the territory of Crimea, from the mainland border, as well as from the territory of Belarus. The press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov called the publication a "pipe" of the anti-Russian information campaign and noted that such messages have nothing to do with reality.

Recently, the West has regularly accused Russia of preparing an "invasion" of Ukraine. Moscow rejected such statements and explained that the "stuffing" in the press loyal to Washington about "Russian aggression" serves as a reason for the tightening of NATO weapons to the borders of the Russian Federation, Sputnik reports.
