MOSCOW, June 25 (Itar-Tass) - Former CIA staffer Edward Snowden has not crossed the Russian border, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after talks with his Algerian colleague Murad Medelci on Tuesday.

"I wish to say promptly that we have nothing to do with Snowden, his relations with the U.S. Department of Justice or his movements around the world," Lavrov said, "he picked his route on his own; we learnt about it from the mass media. Snowden has not crossed the Russian border."

"Therefore we regard, as unjustified and unacceptable, all the attempts to accuse Russia of violating U.S. laws and nearly of conspiracy, accompanied, on top of that, by threats to us," the minister underlined.

"There are no legal grounds for such behavior of U.S. officials. This opinion has been communicated to the United States through proper channels," he added.
