Margarita Simonyan spoke about the meeting of Vladimir Putin and Michael Flynn
Chief editor of RT Margarita Simonyan spoke about the meeting of former US presidential Advisor for national security Michael Flynn with Russian President Vladimir Putin at an event dedicated to the tenth anniversary of the channel.
“Michael Flynn was on our decade. Sat next to Putin. And I was sitting next to. About anything didn’t talk to him — we had a program, many loud video does not talk” — she wrote in the Telegram.
According to Ms. Simonyan, she told Mr Putin that his side will sit Serbian Director Emir Kusturica and former head of military intelligence of the USA Michael Flynn, to which he replied: “Military intelligence? Seriously?” “Said Hello to everyone by the hand, as he always does, looked at our program, gave a speech and left. That’s the whole story,” said Ms. Simonyan.
We will remind, in June the President of Russia Vladimir Putin told his version of the meeting with Michael Flynn. “When I came to the event our company, Russia Today (now called RT.— “B”), was sitting next to me. I delivered his speech. Then we talked about something else. I got up and left. Then I was told: “you Know, there were American. He was involved in some business. Previously, he worked in the security services”. I even really talked to him yet. That’s all my experience with Mr. Flynn”, — said Mr. Putin in an interview with U.S. television channel NBC.
Recall, Michael Flynn was dismissed from the post of adviser in February. The official reason for the resignation was that he was not fully informed Vice-President Mike Pence about his contacts with the Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak. Mr. Flynn was one of the first companions of Donald trump, who came under suspicion of spectacular Robert Mueller.
