Channel journalist “Rustavi 2“Tamara Nutsubidze, who was present during the conversation of the minister with journalists, began to ask the minister a question in English.
“Tamara, excuse me, when you asked to take part in the conference, you spoke Russian,” Zakharova said.
“This is problem?” – asked the journalist.
“Well, it’s just that there are Russian journalists here … Tamara, please, in Russian, let’s go,” Zakharova replied.
The journalist insisted that she wanted to ask a question in English.
“Next time you ask, it’s also in English, okay?” – pointed out Zakharova.
