"No sooner had we launched the show of the former first minister of Scotland than he was declared a Kremlin agent," RT Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan wrote on Twitter.
The statement comes after RT announced on November 10 the launch of a new political talk show hosted by former First Minister of Scotland Alex Salmond "to battle the mainstream media narrative and take the news 'out of the Westminster nexus.'"
Within the framework of the show, the presenter is set to discuss current events, show business and sports news with guests and also introduce his political opponents and allies to the audience.
Most recently, it was reported that former British Prime Minister David Cameron had already refused to participate in the show. The buzz around the RT show comes amid increasing pressure on the broadcaster in some countries, including the UK and the US.
