That was the way she commented over the statement made by James R. Clapper, Director of National Intelligence (DNI), in which he said that the RT works against the U.S., reports RIA «Novosti».

Speaking during the hearings at the United State Senate, the American politician declared that he was extremely concerned about the activity of the RT. He presumes that it promotes a certain point of view neglecting the national system of the U.S. and making allegations that Washington violates human rights and a do a lot of other bad things.

Mr. Clapper also blamed the RT of publishing so called “fake news” and using social networking to carry out information activity aimed against the U.S. At that, the Director of National Intelligence did not give any facts proving his accusations against the RT.

Russian mass media are accused of undermining the state system of the U.S. more and more often. Russian journalists are blamed for that by high officials as well as by newspapers and TV channels.

Europe has joined in the campaign, too. It is to be recalled the EP adopted a resolution on counting “Russian propaganda” on 23 November. 304 out of 691 members of the European Parliament voted for it and 170 members of the EU voted against it. Besides the IA Sputnik and the RT the resolution includes information on undermining political system of European states by the Russkiy Mir Foundation and the Rossotrudnichestvo. It has already been mentioned that the document has clear political overtone.
