Maria Zakharova gave a briefing on the background of the press-wall with a typo in the word “Russian”
The official representative the Ministry of foreign Affairs Maria Zakharova held a briefing in Vladivostok on the background of a banner with an extra letter “I” in the word “Russian”. A video of the performance posted on the YouTube channel of Ministry of foreign Affairs. The word “Russian” was repeated in all the inscriptions on the banner.
Later Zakharova on his page in Facebook admitted that they did not notice the error in the inscription on the press-wall, “because from the beginning of the briefing, and the font is very small, not visible from afar”. Foreign Ministry spokesman noted that the banner was ordered from a private company, but the press service of the Ministry and the organizers of the forum in Vladivostok are not responsible for the error. In response to one of the user reviews for Zakharov stressed that the company-the contractor will not be paid money.
Zakharov asked the subscribers how best to deal with the offending company in this situation. Many users suggested quite drastic measures.

He called the “collective farm” the banner of the Ministry, after which Zakharov suggested to the designer to remedy the situation, with which he agreed.
