State Department spokesman John Kirby called out Russia Today reporter Gayane Chichakyan on Wednesday for working for the Russian government while discussing Russia’s military strikes in Syria.

RT is funded by the Russian government and often has a reporter present at the State Department’s daily press briefing. Some observers have called RT a propaganda tool of the Kremlin.

Chichakyan during Wednesday’s press briefing demanded a list of the hospitals Kirby had mentioned earlier that have been hit by Syrian and Russian airstrikes in the Syrian city of Aleppo. Kirby said that he did not have the list on him but could get one for her. He added that accusations of hospitals being targeted have come from reputable relief agencies on the ground in Syria.

Kirby then told Chichakyan that she should contact the Russian government for why its forces are targeting civilian hospitals.

“Here’s a good question, why don’t you ask your Defense Ministry what they’re doing?” Kirby asked.
