The Russian Foreign Ministry said it believed the allegations had been cooked up at the suggestion of the US State Department.
“We do not think that professional aspects of diplomatic activity and risks linked to it should be discussed in public. But if Washington has launched a ‘public’ discussion, we also have something to say,” the Russian Foreign Ministry noted.“For example, the head and employees of the Russian Scientific and Cultural Center in Washington are being intentionally persecuted. They are receiving continuous telephone calls. Americans are demonstrably spying on them and are making unceremonious attempts to impose a conversation. Besides, the United States is making regular attempts to recruit our diplomats,” the Russian Foreign Ministry stressed.
