Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov does not share the claims made against China in connection with the coronavirus pandemic.
"Allegations that China will have to pay for the fact that the virus originated there and they failed to inform others in due time go beyond all boundaries. I have heard that someone in London says that China has to pay three trillion and 700 billion dollars or euro to the European Union to offset the damage caused by the pandemic. Others call for seizing Chinese property overseas if China fails to pay. It is unacceptable," Lavrov stated.
The rural community is asking more and more the question of how timely and correctly China provided information to the world about the spread of coronavirus and whether it would be possible to avoid the pandemic of such a scale if the information was timely. US President Donald Trump repeatedly criticized the Chinese government for hiding the real picture by the communist regime and providing information to the world with delay.
