Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Maria Zakharova today called out the fradulent Biden administration’s hypocrisy of criticizing the treatment of jailed Kremlin opposition figure Alexei Navalny, while at the same time targeting Trump supporters and ignoring treatment of political prisoners in U.S. jails.
“Washington, who always worries about the human rights situation in the world, but not at home, continues to ignore our arguments. Instead, it dreams up fairy tales and nonsense about the incarceration conditions of inmates in Russia, including Navalny,” she pointed out.
“We call on the authorities in the United States to investigate all cases of violations of the rights of prisoners as soon as possible and in the most transparent manner. What is happening now runs counter not only to the American Constitution and criminal law but also to fundamental international and humanitarian guidelines,” Zakharova maintained.
Zakharova noted earlier that Russian nationals imprisoned in the US did indeed need help, but were only able to get it following requests from Russian embassies and consular offices, wrote Russian state news agency TASS.
