ISLAMABAD: Russia, on Thursday, sought an explanation from Pakistan over the alleged denial of covering a joint presser by the Ukrainian foreign minister along with Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari to a Russian journalist. Through a statement over Twitter, the Embassy of Russia in Islamabad said that it is “inadmissible” to “violate” reporters’ rights to access information.

@RusEmbPakistan stands in solidarity with the Pakistanis colleagues of a Russian journalist @RBekniyazov. It is inadmissible to violate reporters’ rights to access information. In this regard, the Embassy requested the @ForeignOfficePk to provide clarity on the incident,” the Russian embassy said in a tweet.

Pakistan, Ukraine agree to expand cooperation for mutual benefit

Earlier in the day, a Russian journalist, Ruslan Bekniyazov, who regularly covers the Foreign Office briefings in Islamabad, was allegedly denied coverage of the joint stakeout by visiting Ukrainian foreign minister Dmytro Kuleba along with Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) of Pakistan.

Prior to the presser, the MoFA officials allegedly conveyed to him that “the Ukrainian officials have requested that no Russian journalist would sit in the joint presser.”

However, when her attention was diverted towards the incident, Foreign Office spokesperson Mumtaz Zahra Baloch expressed her lack of knowledge about the matter.

Believe me there is a common pattern from Liaquat to Ayub to Bhutto to Zia to Benazir to Musharraf to Zardari to Nawaz to Imran which is they were all chosen by the elite class to beg for dollars. Every single politician or dictator has gone to IMF and other donors to beg for dollars. Every single politician or general selected by the elite class is meant to beg for dollars. The elite class is been doing it from the past 75 years and so on. When Musharraf was in charge Chinese went to him and ask for strategic partnership and in return China said it will move its factories to Pakistan but Musharraf declined and said that he will protect western interests as a result China has no option at that time but to form BRICS alliance with other member states. Every single politician and general that has ruled Pakistan is meant to beg for dollars. Elite keeps telling lies in the name of manufacturing, industry, investment and exports but in reality we are still at 0. Niazi too went to IMF to beg

China and Russia are both brothers of Pakistan but our elite class is western puppet and they openly themselves tell it that they are by going to IMF & western countries to beg for dollars. It is always about the elite class. The Elite Republic of Pakistan. The Elite Bank of Pakistan. The Elite Chamber of Industrialists. The Elite Court of Pakistan. Elite Forces of Pakistan. It is was and will always be about the elite class. People should never ever think that they have any control it is was and will always be the elite class which controls everything in the country believe me if you can. Either believe me or either stay in your delusional world. There is no good or bad one in the elite class because elite class has their own political, financial and foreign western interests. They will all tell you lie about progress, development, superpower, exports, industry and fake wars in the name of self created terrorist organizations to sell their positive image of patriotism. Just Believe me
