MOSCOW, January 27. /TASS/. Washington has provided no evidence that might prove the guilt of Russian citizen Yevgeny Buryakov detained in the United States, and Moscow will keep pressing for the observance of all of his rights, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s human rights ombudsman, Konstantin Dolgov, told the Rossiya-24 television news channel in an interview.
"No proof of the serious charges brought against the Russian citizen has been presented so far," the diplomat said. "That’s the Americans’ usual mode of behaviour. We are pressing for consular access and for the observance of all of his rights."
Dolgov added that Russia will be mounting pressure at all levels to make the United States stop unlawful actions against its citizens. The diplomat said that there have been ever more such cases as of late.
"Our people certainly cannot count on fair administration of justice in the United States," he said. "Sad examples of this sort are many, too."
"This is a great annoyance in our relations with the United States," Dolgov said. "We will go on bringing up this issue at all levels, including high ones. We will be pressing for an end to such unlawful actions towards our citizens."
