MOSCOW, November 16. /TASS/. Provocations on the part of the U.S. for the purpose of de facto abducting Russian citizens in third countries have taken on a systemic character. the Russian Foreign Ministry's ombudsman for human rights, democracy and supremacy of law, Konstantin Dolgov said on Wednesday.
He said it in connection with a comment on the report titled 'The Extraterritorial Application of U.S. law to foreign citizens in third countries' drafted by the Information Groupo on Crimes Against the Person nongovernmental organizations.
The Foreign Ministry put up a comment on the report at its official website.
"We state hereby that the vicious practice of extraterritorial application of U.S. law to citizens of sovereign nations has resulted in blatant encroachments on the rights of more than twenty Russian nationals," Dolgov said.
"The practice of the U.S. law enforcement organizations and secret service to resort of provocations, which involve stunt agents and the subsequent fabrication of criminal cases has become systemic," he said adding that the Russians are being abducted and their captors are subjecting them to a strong psychological and physical pressure in order to extricate the needed evidence from them.
