MOSCOW, February 17. /TASS/. The United States says there is a threat from Russia but has no evidence to prove its claims, Russian Foreign Ministry’s official spokesperson Maria Zakharova told RT TV channel on Wednesday.
"Of course, they know that we [Russia] are not a threat. They [the US authorities] are just creating the impression of perception of Russia as a threat. These are absolutely different things," Zakharova said.
She noted that if the United States had evidence to prove that Russia presents a real threat, Washington would have already presented it to the international community.
"There are just no facts, no data, even far-fetched, which could be used as facts. Everything that we see is an absolutely typical information campaign, pure propaganda," the spokesperson said.
Answering a question on how to treat some Russian journalists' sharp criticism of the United States, Zakharova said that such reaction is rather expected. "Unfortunately, this is in response to what we are hearing from the West," she noted.
