Zakharova: Russia's accusation of spying on the FBI is part of the election carousel

32
The Russian Foreign Ministry was accused of spying on the FBI. Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova in an interview with the radio station "Kommersant FM"Stated that the charges should be considered in the context of the election.




The Yahoo News portal, citing its own sources, published material in which it accused Russia of spying on the Federal Bureau of Investigation. According to the portal, Moscow used suburban complexes at the disposal of the Russian Foreign Ministry as headquarters for intercepting signals from the US department. On the territory of the complexes allegedly was the equipment necessary for these purposes.

The charges relate to the reign of President Barack Obama. Then, at the end of December 2016, of the year against the Russian Federation, a number of sanctions were introduced as a “response to interference in the American election.” In addition, the United States sent 35 Russian diplomats and members of their families, and also closed the suburban dachas of the Russian permanent mission in New York and the embassy in Washington, DC.

In turn, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, in an interview with Kommersant FM radio station, said that the article appeared on the background of the election race before the US presidential election: they should be held next year.

The electoral cycle in the United States is such a fun carousel. All this has to be treated, on the one hand. On the other hand, Russia will certainly comment on any such case.

- said Zakharova.

The representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs believes that in the near future we will all get to know “a lot of fantastic stories, sudden discoveries, amazing predictions, or, possibly, excavations from the past”. Maria Zakharova also notes that the charges will be commented on by the staff of the Russian embassy in Washington.

      Hmm, what’s the Foreign Ministry. Americans still don’t know about our housing and communal services ministry, which, under the guise of combating icicles (in St. Petersburg - with icicles), not only tracks all American military satellites, but can at any time shoot them down with hypersonic brooms laughing

        Tired of the United States with their cries.
        For me it’s like that, even if something from our side was there, then the FBI are not angels at all!
        As the saying goes, whose cow would moo, but not American!

          Well follow, and what? The Americans are also watching, and what?
          Catch ours - catch the Americans, exchange, and vice versa also happens.
          It was and will be.

          but an article on the non-US military was posted. So you would not have heard that they scream. The usual technique is to create an image of the enemy in order to cover up their dark affairs.

          Yes! Masha "Stalin is worse than Hitler", madly in love with New York, is a saint for real "patriots"! She recently wrote a rhyme, now she is looking for a composer to write music to these rhymes and then she will sing! So all "Under @indosniks" should shut up immediately !!!

    "The electoral cycle in the United States is such a fun carousel. All of this has to be treated on the one hand. On the other, Russia will certainly comment on every such case."
    A delusional and funny phrase in the spirit of our Ministry of Foreign Affairs, specifically Zakharova (maybe she is a relative of Klitschko?), Because Lavrov-Kalantarov would not dare to express such nonsense.

      Roman, here is a link to the original quote:

      The electoral cycle in the United States is such a merry-go-round carousel, so this should be treated, on the one hand, with an understanding of what is happening in the United States of America, on the other hand, we will certainly comment on any such case.

          Yes, something in recent years, VO began to constantly tear out phrases from content, or interpret in the right direction. Of course, not everything is good in Russia in Russia; there is still something that needs to be changed for the better. But not everything is as bad as some authors write. The trend however ....

    These espionage passions are periodically updated by the mericatos. So to speak excite the topic for their electorate, so as not to relax)) laughing
    And if we have anything, then all self-respecting special services are engaged in it - "Forewarned is forearmed", but this requires specific docks.

    The Foreign Ministry has long needed to change rhetoric. It is not necessary to comment, but to formally demand confirmation by concrete facts of all ridiculous accusations (if we agree with this evidence, of course). Well, if they are not presented with such deadlines, then let them officially apologize and repent. Naglosaksov must be put in place and taught to respect us.

    This is espionage from their point of view, and from our point of view, normal intelligence activity. And there is nothing to justify here. So the fox can be accused of illegally visiting the chicken coop.

    The Russian Foreign Ministry was accused of spying on the FBI.

    Is it like that? belay
    It is the FBI who monitors our diplomats, controls where and why they go. In general, international organizations need to be removed from the FSA, as an unjustified neutral place.

    Probably, it would be correct to answer symmetrically to the actions of the USA. But if Masha will only comment on the actions of the Americans - it is very, very serious ... and scary, especially if Masha after the party or Masha did not wash her hair!
