UK company behind La Stampa’s article claiming Russian aid to Italy useless — diplomat

A company registered in the UK is behind the article published in Italy’s La Stampa daily claiming that Russian humanitarian aid to Italy is useless in the fight against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova stated on Thursday.

"They have published another fake article with the aim to distort Russia’s actions in relation to the sanitary-epidemiological crisis in Italy. Citing questionable sources, if those sources existed at all, the outlet declared that Russia’s cargo was allegedly scarce, providing false information," she said. "We have managed to trace the intermediary — a company registered in London <…>, whose representatives refused to provide any information about this deal mentioned in the article or to answer any questions regarding the location, price and nature of the cargo, as well as its sender and recipient," the diplomat informed.
