Melons: ‘It is important to clarify’
“The EU in recent months has already extensively given examples of how in other nations Russia has tried in recent years to increase its sphere of influence using 360-degree tools. It is important to know, and it is important to know if the choices that some do they are convinced or in some way influenced by some interest “. She said it Giorgia Meloni on Radio 24. And if it turns out that Lega has taken money from Moscow ?, the leader of the Brothers of Italy was asked: “I don’t think it will happen. We have been talking about it for months, but nothing has emerged.” “Our forms of financing are all verifiable. I am sure that Fratelli d’Italia does not take money from foreigners,” Meloni said, announcing a lawsuit against Repubblica and Paul Volker for an article published in today’s edition of the newspaper. “Repubblica and Volker bring us the evidence. Since they are not there, I think the lawsuit is inevitable”.

Terzi writes to Volker, Fdi never received money from Russia
“I was deeply saddened and upset when reading in La Repubblica the affirmations that this newspaper attributes to you and the doubts that, according to what La Repubblica writes, you have expressed about possible Russian funding for the Brothers of Italy. I still cannot believe that the quote of your words is correct. ” He wrote it in a letter addressed to the former US ambassador Kurt Volker, the candidate of the Brothers of Italy Giulio Terzi Sant’Agata, former ambassador and foreign minister. In the letter, the head of international relations of FdI specified: “Brothers of Italy certainly did not need to wait for the next elections or to become a government force to demonstrate their strong and unshakable Euro-Atlantic commitment. then there has never been financial support, or of any other form and nature, to the party to which I belong from the Russian Federation “. Giulio Terzi concluded the letter with a request: “In the spirit of collaboration and a long-standing sharing of values, I would therefore like to ask you to clarify which concrete facts and circumstances the insinuations reported by La Repubblica are based on, if they actually correspond to yours. words”.

“Never asked for and never took money, rubles, euros, dinars, dollars from Russia”. The leader of the League says so Matteo Salvini,guest of Non stop news on RTL 102.5. “Strange that every time, ten days after the vote, these fake news arrive: there have been open investigations for years, nothing has ever been found because there is nothing. It is another thing to work for peace and try to stop the war. If someone has taken money, tell it. It seems to me that someone especially on the left uses this story not to mention Italy, bills, folders and work. Those who help the League do it in Italy, in a transparent and spontaneous way “, he concludes.

Hope: Italians must know
“As a government we have never discussed these Russian funds. If our political forces have received them, the Italians must know. There can be no doubts of any kind on such delicate issues.” Thus the Minister of Health and leader of LeU in Agorà.
