‘‘It’s not for me to prove any of this is false, as far as I know there is a presumption of innocence, so it’s up to you to prove it’s true.It’s the same people who fail to create universal rules to bestow order on the media, who fail to consolidate efforts to fight cyber fraud who are accusing us, without any proof, of taking almost the entire world under our control,’‘
he said.

Lavrov touched on the deployment of some 4,000 US troops in Poland and NATO exercises in Estonia close to the border with Russia:
“If NATO power structures could not think of better ways to use its forces rather than in Estonia on the border with Russia, it means its intelligence is doing a poor job. It means NATO does not realise what’s going on in other parts of the world, parts of the world that are under NATO responsibility.”
