Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov said he received a letter urging him to condemn the actions of President Vladimir Putin. He announced this on the air of Channel One.
“In my address, I recently received a letter in the mail calling for me to renounce my homeland, so that I condemn the actions of the Russian president. If I do this, I was asked to contact the office of First Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman, — Antonov explained, calling the message he received “provocative”.
According to him, the Russian diplomatic mission turned to the US State Department for clarification.
Antonov also said that near the Russian embassy, unidentified people were handing out cards with FBI contacts and offering to talk to its employees. “I have no reason to say unequivocally that these are representatives of special services or provocateurs, I say that there are such facts <…>»,— added the ambassador.
In addition, he drew attention to the fact that articles appeared in the American media calling on Russian servicemen and diplomats to “betray their homeland.”
“I will emphasize my the most severe rejection of such a policy and such an attitude towards Russian diplomats, — noted Antonov.
