Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova visited Yahoo News this week, talking with Katie Couric and shooting from the hip about the “ridiculous” U.S. airstrikes in Syria, the scourge of fake news, President Trump, and a range of other topics.
However, one subject apparently off the table was the recent reports of concentration camps in Chechnya that holding gay men, many of whom are tortured and, in some cases, killed.
Zakharova’s response is troubling, to say the least.
