Russia's huge natural resources are the reason why the neo-liberal world is fighting against it

Summary of Disinformation

Russia’s huge natural resources are the reason why the neo-liberal world is fighting against Russia. The former US Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, said in an interview that “It is a great injustice that 40% of the world’s mineral resources belong to one country, Russia.”

Disproof

There is no record that Albright has ever made such statement.

More debunking from Polygraph.info in this September 2016 article, which tracked the earliest mention of the alleged remark to February 2005.

This is a recurring disinformation message, used by pro-Russian sources as evidence of the West’s ulterior motives in dealing with Russia.The same alleged quote by Madeleine Albright was used to disinform that NATO is an offensive organization.
