BUENOS AIRES, October 27. /Offset. TASS Elena Kondratieva/. The Russian government is considering retaliatory measures on the decision of Facebook to remove all advertising from the accounts of the RT and news Agency Sputnik. About it the correspondent of TASS said Friday the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, who arrived in Argentina to attend the first consultations of the press services of ministries of foreign Affairs of the two countries.
“It is being decided now. We have such a thing as interdepartmental coordination, because such measures involve the development of a consolidated position, which will be based, of course, in the Russian legislation”, – she said.
“It’s not our choice,” – said Zakharov. According to her, competition in the media field should occur between the media on the basis of the quality of the material. “Use of administrative cudgel, and especially the entire Arsenal of U.S. intelligence – this game is already against the rules, this is fighting without rules. That is what we will be responsible”, she said.
