The Russian Embassy in Washington called on the US to disclose organizations receiving US funding.
“We urge the Department of State to follow a truly transparent policy of disclosing the recipients of US funding,” the Russian embassy said on Twitter.
It is specified that we are talking about those organizations that influence political processes in other countries.
As noted RIA Novosti, on Tuesday US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo demanded that American think tanks and organizations wishing to work with the State Department report on receiving funding from abroad.
According to Pompeo, some foreign governments, including Russia and China, are trying to influence US foreign policy through “lobbyists, external experts and think tanks”.
Earlier it was reported that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov criticized the policies of the American authorities. He recalled that the United States withdrew from UNESCO, WHO and the UN Human Rights Council.
