A CNN crew attended Zakharova’s weekly briefing in Moscow on Thursday, but asked no questions at the session itself about a fresh report by CNN, which said “current and former US intelligence officials have described Kislyak as a top spy and recruiter of spies.”
The journalist approached the ministry spokeswoman after the event concluded, but she refused to seriously discuss the issue.
“CNN accused him of being a Russian spy, recruiting spies… Oh, my god!” Zakharova exclaimed.
The CNN reporter then tried to correct the spokeswoman by saying that the accusations came from some US officials.
“Come on, stop spreading lies and fake news. This is a good advice for the CNN. Thank you,” Zakharova replied as she walked away.
