‘Despite repeated warnings contained, particularly, in a December 9, 2022 note of the Foreign Ministry, the U.S. diplomatic mission continues its malicious activity in the information space, indulging in inappropriate statements about the leadership of the host country,’ a delivered protest note noted.
The foreign ministry also denounced the dissemination of falsifications about the activities of the Russian Armed Forces in the special military operation in Ukraine, which is considered a criminal offense.
The text warned the U.S. representatives against attempts to carry out subversive work, ‘as they recruit agents of influence with the aim of sowing discord in Russian society, and insist on anti-state speeches.
Employees involved in this will be expelled, regardless of their positions,’ he added.
According to the letter, the new U.S. Ambassador Lynn Tracy, who presented copies of her credentials to the Foreign Ministry on January 30, received from the Russian side the ‘strict idea of the need to comply with Russian laws and cease activities that go against the requirements of government authorities’.
Russia indicated that it possesses the intention to use all available means to neutralize the forgeries of the northern embassy on Russian territory.
