EU diplomacy head Borrell complains he's less popular in the Western press than Lavrov

The head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, complained that he was less popular in the Western press than Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

"Lavrov is going to Africa to try to convince Africans that European sanctions are to blame for everything that is happening, <...> and the entire Western press repeats this.

I'm going to Africa to say the opposite, that sanctions have nothing to do with it, and nobody picks it up," Borrell said in an interview with radio station Cadena SER.

He drew attention to the tendency of "listening to the enemy" as one of the reasons for this and called for redoubled efforts to counter the spread of Russian information, which he considers to be "lies".
