"We strongly reject the propagandistic and communicational hysteria unleashed by the U.S. government against Russia," the Cuban foreign minister said.
At the same time, Rodríguez warned about the role of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) in the world, "we firmly oppose the expansion of NATO to the borders of this brother country (Russia)," he said.
Rechazamos enérgicamente la histeria propagandística y comunicacional que desata el gobierno de Estados Unidos contra Rusia y nos oponemos firmemente a la expansión de la OTAN hasta las fronteras de ese hermano país.
We strongly reject the propagandistic and communicational hysteria unleashed by the U.S. government against Russia.
It should be recalled that on 16 February, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova repudiated the position of major US and British media that alluded to an alleged military invasion by Moscow in Ukraine.
"A request to the American and British disinformation media Bloomberg, The New York Times, The Sun, etc.: announce the schedule of our 'invasions' for this year. We would like to plan our holidays," Zakharova said.
The Russian authorities have consistently rejected media campaigns to misinform on the Ukraine case, claiming that Moscow prioritises dialogue and diplomacy to solve the region's problems and current humanitarian crisis.
