MOSCOW, November 12. /TASS/. Russia does not understand how media receiving money from US government agencies for their work may remain independent and provide impartial information, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.

"It is planned to allocate $86 million next year on programs to counter Russian propaganda and the construction of civil society, including $16 million for independent media. Independent media will thus be supported at the expense of US government agencies. Is that possible?" she noted.

Zakharova added that Washington had tried to present such "independent and impartial" picture of events with the support of US government agencies in the past. "After the MH17 crash in July 2014, 130 American specialists were sent to cover the incident. And they created an ‘unbiased’ picture of the tragedy," the Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson said.
