The press Secretary of the US Embassy in Moscow William Stevens commented on the information of the newspaper the Washington Post about the pressure, which is the Russian security services to U.S. diplomats in Russia and Europe.
In his words, quoted by “Interfax”, such facts really take place, and, as pointed out by the media, the pressure right now “increased significantly” (we will remind, the publication wrote that the strengthening began with 2014).
Thus a press-the Secretary said that it is not only special agents, but also on the traffic police. The whole situation he called “unacceptable” and promised that the US will “meet designated manner in accordance with American and international law.”
The immediate reason for this review was the information about the beating of an American diplomat (as suggested by some experts — maybe a scout) in early June, at the entrance to the U.S. Embassy, he was attacked by a man “in the form of the FSB.” In the end the representative of the United States was a broken shoulder, the result that he had to urgently leave the country for treatment.
Stevens, however, stated that it did not consider it a reason for public debate and the issue needs to be privately resolved at the government level.
Recall that, according to media reports, Russian secret services are not only ostentatiously pursue the American diplomats and their families, but also penetrate into their homes, rearrange the furniture and turn on the lights. In addition, informed the American military attache in Moscow, was killed by a dog, and another diplomat have been found on the carpet of excrement.
Official representative of the Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova also previously commented on all the incidents, she stated that “the more the U.S. will spoil the relationship, the harder it will be to us diplomats working in Russia.”Related posts:
