Russia calls Trump's WHO decision selfish

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov (pictured) condemned on Wednesday United States President Donald Trump's decision to stop funding the World Health Organization (WHO), calling it a selfish move.

"Washington's announcement of the suspension of WHO funding is very worrying," Ryabkov stated. "This is a manifestation of the very selfish approach of the US government to the global developments regarding the pandemic," he added.

On Tuesday, Trump announced he instructed his administration to halt WHO funding in response to the organization's alleged failure to report the outbreak of the coronavirus in time.
