The US State Department may prohibit Russian diplomats from leaving Washington, and now you need to warn about your exact route to leave. This was stated by the Russian Ambassador to the States Anatoly Antonov.
“All diplomats now have to warn the State Department about the exact route a week or two in advance. Moreover, the Americans can refuse without giving reasons,” he said and added that he did not understand what was the point.
In an interview with RIA Novosti Antonov toldthat Russian diplomats have to carry out their activities under the conditions of numerous restrictions that the host side constantly comes up with.
According to the interlocutor of the agency, the embassy is in some way “advanced”. “We treat our official duties with a high degree of responsibility,” Antonov said.
In early October, the ambassador said that relations between Moscow and Washington are in a sorry state and approached a dangerous line. He added that no one in the United States is currently discussing the establishment and development of relations with the Russian side.
