She recalled that in early June, Bolton, at a forum organized by The Wall Street Journal, said several countries, including Russia, were trying to spread false information about disagreements in the administration of US President Donald Trump. But three months later, the American leader dismisses Bolton, explaining that he "does not agree with many of his proposals, like the others in the administration."
“I have a question: who should be the first to apologize for this particular fake? The WSJ publication, which organized the next rally of geopolitical visionaries aggressively promoting disinformation, and, accordingly, became a propaganda tool? The Bloomberg agency that actively quoted Bolton's fake without any fact-checking? Or John Bolton himself, who not only invented a fake about Russia, accusing it of spreading false information, but also hid the true state of affairs in the USA? The answer is obvious: that's it. Because it’s time, ”Zakharova emphasized.
Earlier, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that between him and former presidential adviser John Bolton, disagreements often arose during work. Pompeo also said that foreign leaders with the departure of John Bolton should not expect changes in US foreign policy.
Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov, commenting on the dismissal of John Bolton, said that Russia does not expect any changes in connection with the shifts in the American administration. The deputy minister added that Moscow continues to judge by cases, not statements and intentions.
Russian President’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov called Bolton’s resignation an internal US affair.
