Russia rebukes US diplomat over publication about Moscow rally

Russia’s Foreign Ministry has summoned Minister-Counselor of the US Embassy in Moscow Tim Richardson over a publication on the diplomatic mission’s website about the unauthorized August 3 rally in Moscow, ONA reports citing TASS.

"On August 9, the Russian Foreign Ministry summoned Minister-Counselor of the US Embassy in Moscow Tim Richardson. He was reprimanded in connection with publishing information about an unauthorized rally in Moscow on August 3 on the official account of the State Department’s Bureau of Consular Affairs on the Twitter social network and on the diplomatic mission’s website," the ministry said.

The ministry emphasized that it viewed "the publication of the protest route, drawn up by the organizers of the unauthorized event, as agitation towards participating in it and an appeal for action, which represents an attempt at meddling in our country’s domestic affairs."
