Brazil Defends its Ties with Russia and Dismisses US Criticism

Brazil on Monday dismissed US criticism that President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva was “echoing Russian and Chinese propaganda” about Ukraine.

The Brazilian refusal came after White House national security spokesman John Kirby said Brazil was “repeating Russian and Chinese propaganda without regard to the facts” about the situation in Ukraine.

Brazilian Foreign Minister Mauro Vieira commented on Kirby’s remarks, saying, “I don’t know how or why he came to that conclusion, but I totally disagree with him.”
