Russian Foreign Ministry: US intelligence agencies leaked BuzzFeed personal data of Russian diplomats

26
On the official website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, a comment was published by the department regarding publications in the American press about remittances from Russia to the embassy in Washington. We are talking about publications on the American information portal BuzzFeed (giving an obvious "yellowness"), which is based on obtaining personal data of the staff of the Russian diplomatic mission according to their bank card numbers. The Russian Foreign Ministry accuses BuzzFeed of the fact that the portal is an instrument of the American special services, invading confidential information about banking transactions.


Russian Foreign Ministry: US intelligence agencies leaked BuzzFeed personal data of Russian diplomats


We bring comment Russia's chief foreign affairs agency completely:

It is of extreme concern that on January 17, he pretended to be news the portal, and in fact being the information tool of the American special services, the BuzzFeed resource has published a new portion of confidential information about the transactions of Russian diplomatic institutions in the USA and a number of employees of our Embassy - current and former. Obviously, this could not have happened without the knowledge of the authorities of this country.

The employees of this resource themselves admitted that when they were trying to solicit comments from our diplomats, they used contact information from their bank profiles. However, to obtain such data without the sanction of the relevant US government bodies is simply impossible. In other words, encroachment on the inviolability of the accounts of the Russian Embassy and its employees, who have diplomatic immunity, is the work of official Washington.

Moreover, many of the information cited was deliberately falsified, and again, as it was in November 2017, they were maliciously interpreted in an effort to fit them into the logic of the US campaign on charges of “interfering with the American elections” in Russia. But in the case of accounts, this is no longer just a question of “fake news”, but a real crime, including the violation of the secrecy of banking information, the disclosure of personal data.

True, even with the help of frauds, nothing reprehensible is presented to us by American Russophobes, who judge by themselves, does not work - for the complete absence of a real texture. Unlike the US embassies, which often resort to the latent transfer of funds of various kinds to opposition groups, including the goal of destabilizing the domestic political situation, Russia does not deal with such things.

That is why the initiators of the next anti-Russian provocation are trying to give a conspiracy the usual salary transfers, transfer of money earned by diplomats home after the end of business trips and payments to construction companies for the repairs carried out.

Once again, we have to state that Washington does not provide the proper conditions for the functioning of diplomatic institutions of Russia. The pressure on them continues and increases. This is a malicious, systematic failure to comply with the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations 1961 of the year.

We urge the United States to stop this practice, to return to decent behavior, to resume responsible and respectable interstate communication. We demand that the US authorities finally begin to comply with their own national legislation and international obligations, immediately stop the unauthorized dissemination of confidential information affecting the interests of the Russian Federation, and bring to justice those responsible, including those who occupy relevant positions in the US government.


As you can see, in the commentary, all things are called by their names and quite sharp interpretations are applied, which are, in fact, a symmetrical response to the rhetoric of the United States of America with regard to the Russian Federation.

        Something tells me that we won’t wait. Although it would be fair to merge the personal data of all employees of the American Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs itself, together with transactions for the year, for example)))) in response to the media.

      If we do this, all NGOs and the Liberal Opposition will have to openly recognize "enemy agents"

          The fact that we are polite and tactful, and we can’t tell the elderly, supposedly honored worker that he is a used contraceptive.

            Exorcism and politeness are not compatible. It’s like, instead of “amen,” say “please,” at the end.

      How many times Russia needs to be kicked so that we do something really “tough” with respect to mattresses and their sixes

    Open the "diplomatic mail" of the United States, which goes to finance the opposition. Usually these are bales with 100,50 and 20 dollar bills. There cannot be hundreds of kilograms of pouch at one time, it is usually black cash.

    They lose their pin to face. I am sure that each embassy of other countries tried on the situation for themselves.

    As for the requirement to “stop the practice,” I agree, but everything else the US needs to be taught first.

    And what are we actually waiting for. So far it turns out that you need to respond with the same actions, just do not seem to get conversations?
    We have, by the way, a lot of information, for example, money gets into envelopes that they then find with Sobchak

    it’s time in Russian cities, where there are employees of American institutions and Russians working for them, as well as media agents and NGOs, put up stands on which to place their photos, addresses, phone numbers, autobiographical data, the state of bank accounts, and also cover their life daily in detail over the past day with a photo report

    We must answer asymmetrically! Put secret documents on Poroshenko’s and Co.’s ties with the FSB on the “peacemaker”, merge information with the Barmaley as mattresses are injected into our air forces in Syria, tell the Europeans about Putin’s conspiracy with Merkel to Islamize Europe, give the Americans a realistic insider about Trump’s ties with the GRU, and the Saudis about that the States exchanged them for Siberian oil, etc.! The main thing is to do everything quickly and beautifully, then stock up on seeds ... fellow
