As it turned out, the State Department promptly "responded" to the incident at the American embassy in Moscow, sending two Russian diplomats from the United States more on June 17, reports RIA News with reference to the representative office of John Kirby.

The State Department responded to the incident at the American Embassy in Moscow by expelling two Russian diplomats from the United States.


"We 17 June sent two Russian diplomats from the United States in response to this attack,"
said Kirby.

Recall that in late June, Western media reported on an alleged attack by a Russian police officer guarding the embassy, ​​at one of the employees of the US Embassy. The Russian Foreign Ministry then explained that an American diplomat was serving at the CIA and he himself attacked a Russian, trying to break into the embassy without presenting a pass. This moment was recorded by CCTV cameras.

Later, the Washington Post newspaper, citing unnamed US officials, confirmed that the diplomat was indeed working for the CIA and "was trying to hide himself at the embassy from representatives of the Russian special services who were planning to detain him."

The State Department declined to comment on the video due to the fact that they allegedly "cannot determine its authenticity."

          Russia expelled two American diplomats from the country, one of whom is a CIA officer. The Foreign Ministry noted that this decision is a mirror measure for the expulsion of Russian diplomats. The Foreign Ministry declared two American diplomats "persona non grata" and expelled them from the country. This decision was a response to similar actions by Washington, which expelled two Russian diplomats in June. "They were declared persona non grata for activities incompatible with diplomatic status. This is the same night bully and another such CIA operative." quoted by the press service of the department, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov.
          According to him, the US State Department continues to aggravate the atmosphere of relations between the countries, and the Barack Obama administration "has been crushing them for more than two years."
          "Not to mention the constant pressure on the employees of our diplomatic institutions, and not only in the United States - we know very well (we receive such information from our partners) about the American pressure on other countries in order to force them to participate in provocative actions against us," added Ryabkov.

      He crawled like a rat, trying to crawl into a hole with a cat clutching his neck. Footage was shown on TV, where they showed how he tried to slip past the security post without presenting documents. The guard jumped out and threw him to the floor. So, pushing himself from the floor with his hands and feet, he somehow crawled out the door where the embassy territory is already located, and there he is already inviolable.
      The guard acted correctly, - hell knows, - maybe it's a terrorist. If that happened, the Americans would have raised such a stench, screaming that Russia cannot ensure the safety of diplomats.

        Apalitical reasoning, however! It was a special operation of the entire FSB of the Russian Federation in Moscow and the Region. All 120% of employees were involved. The TsRUshnik carried a valuable copy of Putin’s SMS to Dimon’s iPhone indicating the timing of fishing trips.
        But the cunning shpien nevertheless miraculously passed away at the last moment from the hands of a young graduate of the FSB Academy.
        Joint fishing did not take place ... Putin left alone. Peskov also talked about this at a press conference.

    The US Congress is considering the establishment of a body that will monitor the actions of Russian intelligence officers working in the country. The relevant bill was adopted by the Senate Intelligence Committee in May of this year. Now the document must be approved by the full composition of the upper house of Congress. According to the bill, the tasks of the new special group, whose members will be personally appointed by the president of the country, will include “disclosing Russian spies”. The committee should include employees of the Department of State and representatives of the US intelligence community. Meetings of the committee will be held monthly. Also, the document involves tightening control over Russian diplomats. In particular, it implies control over their movements throughout the United States - the institution will send requests to the FBI to study all applications from diplomats for trips further than 50 miles (80,5 km) from their place of direct work. Permission will not be issued if the diplomat violated the relevant rules in the previous three months. Russia needs to create its own Cheka against American spies and adopt similar legislation!



    It is also specified that the FBI declined to comment on the bill.

    I had to participate, through the USSR Ministry of Defense, in negotiations with the US military delegation. After negotiations at our Ministry of Foreign Affairs and in a building specially designated for this, Soviet representatives were invited to the US Embassy. There were four of us generals, we assessed the possibility of creating joint RSDN chains in the Far East. The decision was positive.
    At the entrance to the US embassy, ​​then the policeman, at my entrance to the embassy building, checked the ID, and right outside the embassy door there was a post where the American marine was standing. He also checked the identity card and accompanied each of us to the 2nd floor in the ambassador's reception hall. There was a laid-back conversation that Americans recorded. We knew about this and answered their questions with humor. After this evening, in our bodies, we reported in detail who was on the American side and about the questions that US representatives asked us.
    Yesterday, on television, I did not see this US Marine on duty when they showed this incident. Of course, something has changed, but our policeman jumped out of the booth too late, or so it was planned. I have the honor.

    If there was a fact of violation of diplomatic norms by an employee of the US embassy, ​​why the next day the Ministry of Foreign Affairs did not make official complaints against the US diplomatic official about unacceptable behavior, and began to make excuses only after the scandal in the US State Department was raised? One of two things: either the policeman was wrong, or the squeezing in front of his older brother, waiting for an apology, again led only to wiping from across the ocean with a feeling of deep satisfaction. Then rightly so.

    It is necessary to remove all the protection of their embassy, ​​even if they themselves, f ... eat, protect! And invite martyrs to this holiday! Then, the Yankees are stupid, they’ll understand everything!

    Apalitical reasoning, however! It was a special operation of the entire FSB of the Russian Federation in Moscow and the Region. All 120% of employees were involved. The TsRUshnik carried a valuable copy of Putin’s SMS to Dimon’s iPhone indicating the timing of fishing trips.
    But the cunning shpien nevertheless miraculously passed away at the last moment from the hands of a young graduate of the FSB Academy.
    Joint fishing did not take place ... Putin left alone. Peskov also talked about this at a press conference.
    A young graduate is punished ...


    WTF !? ... There are questions with humor ... Or guessed the course of the special operation?
    Then, then, the young FSB officer was awarded the order for service?
    For many years of work for the good of the motherland?

    Again, Russia is to blame, and the American is white and fluffy.

    And still. The security guard had to detain the violator of the access control. Make it out in full, both in documentary and physical sense. Ie, give him hot heels. And warn you that it will be much worse next time. Do provocateurs need to be "treated"?
