In the US, Russian aid met with a wave of indignation


The delivery of Russian medical care to combat COVID-19 in the United States is indignant and criticized, the American television channel CNN broadcasts.


Former State Department officials were “puzzled” and “stunned” by the US purchase of medical supplies in Russia against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic - a move that, according to experts, is “the Kremlin’s propaganda victory.”

A Russian aircraft with equipment landed in New York on April 1, 2020. Moreover, the American air traffic controller thanked the Russian pilots for the assistance provided. State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said the United States has procured everything it needs, including mechanical ventilation and personal protective equipment.

Both countries in the past provided humanitarian assistance to each other during crises and will undoubtedly do so again in the future. This is a time to work together to overcome a common enemy that threatens the lives of us all.

- added Ortagus.

At the same time, the decision of the White House was met with bewilderment by a number of former officials.

Perhaps this is the case when Trump made an independent decision, and the bureaucrats carry it out without going into details to avoid criticism

- says a former official who wished to remain anonymous.

The Russians will send as many aircraft as possible to us in order to create the impression that we are dependent on Russia. If we continue to accept this, it will make us look weak and their strong

- said another former official.

Former diplomat Brett McGark call this delivery is "propaganda bonanza."

In turn, Graham Brooks, director and chief editor of the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Laboratory, believes that “Russia has come to help. This is a positive but propaganda gesture. ”

In many ways, Russian communication with Donald Trump has acquired aspects of trolling. I think this is just another of the incidents we saw when the Russians outwitted the White House

- confident Andrew Weiss, vice president of research at the Carnegie Endowment for Russia and Eurasia.

      In my opinion, Zakharova clearly explained that the RDIF paid half the help. I think - actually it could have been 100%, but then the volume would have been half as much - the "partners" decided to increase the volume and paid the second half, the United States has a lot of green paper.
      I somehow believe Zakharova more - her reputation is somewhat different than that of CNN.

    Does this help resemble throwing beads in front of pigs? Did their mother not teach the word "thank you"?

      For the first time I see this. wassat To help people. Then nervously and painfully react to the opinion clearly for the engaged. And call all the people whom help was provided by pigs. Sit at home on self-isolation, please silently. And then it seems that the coronavirus is not easy for you to hook.

        This is also the first time I've seen this. Help the person and get a charge back.
        Example. Your sign is sick. You visited him in the hospital and brought fruit. In response, they heard - the fruits are stale and generally you would go to hell. Anyway. Thank you not heard. You can come a second time. Or call him a pig. Do not call, but call.
        And then, show me where I wrote about "all the people." It seems that you do not know how to read.

          And you would ask first, before bringing the fruit to whom. Will your fruit be welcome there? And the impression is that you are using, like the one with the bag. You would inquire about your home country. Suddenly here. Not there. And here, beyond the Moscow Ring Road, help has been needed for a long time.

            So I wrote about this earlier. And you - "called the whole nation a pig."
            Sometimes it seems to me that I (Azerbaijani) know Russian better than Russians. Do not kick me for this statement.
            So,

            “Throw beads in front of pigs” - it is in vain to talk about something or to prove something to someone who is not capable or does not want to either understand or appraise it properly.

            Sermon on the Mount Jesus Christ:

            Do not give the shrine to the dogs and do not throw your pearls before the pigs, so that they do not trample it under their feet and, turning, do not tear you to pieces.

            Before all, and more specifically, the Chinese acted. As soon as the EU blotted out something, Huawei immediately withdrew medical aid to Europe. Therefore, I have always (!) Been against the help of the EU and the USA. These countries are not going to value assistance. Individual statements of people do not change the overall picture.

          There are two versions: the first is the version of the State Department, which consists in the fact that the American side fully paid for this product, and the second version is the version of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in which the Americans paid only half. The question arises - which of them is lying?
          But this is not the most important thing. The answer to another question is much more important - why did they lie that it was humanitarian aid? More precisely, Russian propaganda lied, and Trump did not even try to refute, and did not say anything that they bought this help, thus playing along with Russian propaganda.

    I think that Russia's assistance and its composition was agreed with the US Government, otherwise it would be incomprehensible that it was necessary to deliver from Russia to the United States "for distant lands" ...
    And the opinions of individual American idiots could not be cited - they are full in every country, and NOBODY call them.

    Even when President Trump and the Russian Foreign Ministry congratulated each other on a small sale of vital equipment, a former retired US military commander in Europe said that Russian footage from Antonov’s cargo compartment showed that it was filled with poorly protected cardboard boxes, and probably were fraudulent advertising because they were improperly built for the flight.

    Don't look for a black cat in a dark room that isn't there. Russia has always helped any country where ordinary people are in trouble. Trump made a wise decision to accept help, because you need to save people and do everything so that the situation does not get out of control. I am proud of Russia, and that I am Russian, I love Russia !!! I know they will say that we ourselves need help. Yes, we do, but we Russians always come to the rescue and we are the best. We do not buy peoples, we help. And the fact that the United States imposed sanctions is better for us, we can finally raise agriculture and the production of industrial goods.

    The nonsense is complete. Trump agrees with the help of Russia, all questions to him. The United States today is losing the dead from the virus to its entire regiment, is there really a desire to bring daily losses to the division? And who writes? Exs?
