Press Secretary Andrei Savinykh comments on Associated Press reference to the statement by the head of the UN Working Group on the Use of Mercenaries Jos#233; del Prado
We have received a comprehensive answer from the head of the UN Working Group on the Use of Mercenaries José del Prado what exactly he told the Associated Press reporter.
It has been established that the UN official told the American journalist that he had no information and therefore could not confirm the presence of any Belarusian mercenaries in Libya.
The statement was clear-cut and unambiguous.
Similar confirmations came in from the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.
Thus, another attempt by a western media organization to falsify the real situation has been exposed.
The fact can be deemed a proof that Associated Press is a hired propaganda outlet and tool. It seems this appraisal may be referred to other western media that circulated publications on the subject.
As we can see, western journalists effortlessly step over the conventional democratic standards when it is convenient to them and in line with the interests of their sponsors.
