Online appeared publication by a non-state Israeli media that Swedish activists demanded an investigation into the links of their compatriot Greta Thunberg with a Russian NGO funded directly from the budget of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 2019-2021.
The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, reacted to this. In her Telegram she published a post in which she cited her selection of contacts between a young green economy lobbyist and Western politicians.

“Greta’s drive and courage has inspired millions of people and sparked a youth movement for change in every corner of the globe. This award is well deserved and serves as a reminder of the urgent, decisive action we must take to address the climate crisis,” Biden tweeted.
