MOSCOW, June 08. /ITAR-TASS/. Vitaly Churkin, Russia’s Permanent Representative at the United Nations, said on Sunday he was sure U.S. security services were bugging his office and telephone.
“I am sure they do,” he told the Sunday Time television programme on Russia’s Channel One on Sunday. “I proceed from the fact that I, in my official capacity, am being bugged all the time. We have lived through the Cold War, so I care little about this bugging.”
“I am absolutely sure that my mobile phone is being bugged - it is obvious and I bear it in mind. We do have some secret premises where I can discuss things with my colleagues in a confidential atmosphere. And even if they don’t bug me, I still bear such possibility in mind,” he said.
