Maria Zakharova, a Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson, stopped by Yahoo News to talk with Katie Couric about fake news, the U.S. airstrikes in Syria, President Trump, and the Russian influence on the French election.
When Couric turned to the reports of gay men detained and tortured in Chechnya, Zakharova became visibly annoyed and shut Couric down, explaining there was an investigation.
Watch the disturbing exchange:
