    The Russian foreign minister responded to Emmanuel Macron calling RT and Sputnik propaganda.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — French President Emmanuel Macron's remarks classifying the RT broadcaster and Sputnik news agency as propaganda reflect anti-Russian inertia gripping the Western world, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Tuesday.

    "The assessments that you quote reflect the well-known inertia of the anti-Russian campaign, which the Obama administration unleashed and which has swept through a number of other Western countries including Europe, from which our Western partners cannot escape. Having said that, there are no facts," Lavrov said at a briefing alongside his Nigerian counterpart.
