After Obama expelled 35 Russian diplomats, CNN reported that the Russians retaliated in a dirty way.
“Russia’s first visible action came later Thursday, when Russian authorities ordered the closure of the Anglo-American School of Moscow, a US official briefed on the matter said. The order from the Russian government closes the school, which serves children of US, British and Canadian embassy personnel, to US and foreign nationals.”
One problem: It’s not true.
Information on the closure of the Anglo-American School in Moscow spread by CNN is completely false, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, wrote on her Facebook.
“US officials ‘anonymously informed’ their media that Russia closed the Anglo-American School in Moscow as a retaliatory measure,” she said. “That’s a lie. Apparently, the White House has completely lost its senses and began inventing sanctions against its own children.”
“You should not write that ‘Moscow denied…. Or Moscow will not…”. Write as it is: “The CNN TV channel and other Western media have again spread false information citing official American sources,” Zakharova stated.
That’s what CNN gets for trusting anonymous officials. Sometimes you get lied to.

Russians aren’t attacking children. They’re not even expelling U.S. diplomats.
Russians are waiting until the feckless Obama Administration is gone.
They’re waiting for the adults to be in charge again!
Meanwhile, CNN lies about what the Russians are doing.
Share so everyone sees that CNN reports fake news!!
