Russia demands investigation of attack on its reporters in US
29 de octubre de 2020, 15:25Moscow, Oct 29 (Prensa Latina) Russia expressed on Thursday its outrage at Washington's inaction in the face of an attack on journalists from the Pervi national channel in the US and demanded a thorough investigation of that incident.
'We are dismayed by the open passivity shown by the US authorities in relation to an attack on Wednesday against correspondents and a filming group of the Pervi channel, in the city of Philadelphia,' stated the spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zajarova.
The police never appeared at the time of the attack, but not even after requesting help from a patrol car did they react to this incident, the spokesperson reported.
That aggression highlights the passivity of US officers, especially when the International Day to end unpunished crimes against journalists approaches, which is celebrated on November 2, Zajarova noted.
Such level of impunity for crimes against journalists rather reminds us of the chronicles of a theater of military operations, which does not match to the champion image of the defense of democratic values with which Washington is positioned in the world, she concluded.
