MOSCOW, August 31. /TASS/. The detention in Armenia of Russian national Sergey Mironov, put by the U.S. authorities on a wanted list, is part of Washington’s anti-Russian campaign, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Wednesday.
"As regards, on the whole, the fact that the United States is just hunting Russian nationals, we have repeatedly spoken about it," Zakharova said. "We have warned Russians in a relevant way about what may be called a hunt on the part of Washington."
"All we are observing on the part of Washington is part of an anti-Russian campaign and realization of unrealized ambitions. We consider the hunt for Russian nationals as part of that campaign," she said while commenting on Mironov’s detention in Armenia.
The diplomat said the Russian Foreign Ministry took an active part in organization of Mironov’s return to his motherland. "Taking into account that the talk is about a Russian national who is abroad, the Foreign Ministry, including via diplomatic missions, took an active part in the fate of our compatriot," she said.
Mironov was detained August 26 in Yerevan airport by the Armenian police on a U.S. request. But on August 29, a local court dismissed the motion of the Armenian Prosecutor General’s Office on the Russian’s arrest. He left Yerevan for Moscow today.
