    Deputy speaker of the lower house of the Russian parliament Irina Yarovaya on Friday commented a recent Fox News poll on negative US citizens' opinions of Russia by stating that the United States has the largest "deficit of truth" in the world.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Thursday, Fox News conducted a survey saying that 64 percent of US citizens consider Russia as an enemy of the United States.

    "The United States has the world's largest internal and external deficit of truth. This is a preset deception aimed at a negative attitude toward Russia," Yarovaya said.

    The Russian official added that information about Moscow's role in the victory over Nazi Germany has already been removed from the minds of US citizens and the US population could now be left without knowledge about Russia's role in the struggle against terrorism as well.

    In the same poll, 73 percent of respondents said that US President Donald Trump considered Russia to be an ally.

    The Fox News poll was conducted on May 21-23 among 1,011 randomly chosen adults across the United States.
