The house of representatives of U.S. Congress on the 30th of November has adopted the bill restricting the movements of Russian diplomats in the country. About it was reported by RIA Novosti, citing the official website of the lower house of Congress.
The provision enabled one of the items in a bill funding U.S. intelligence in 2017 financial year.
“Accredited members of diplomatic missions of Russia in the United States cannot travel more than 25 miles (40 kilometers) from their office buildings during a calendar quarter,” is spoken in the document text.
In that case, if the FBI until the end of the previous calendar quarter informs about the absence of violations of this regime by the representatives of Russia, the limitation will be partially removed.
Earlier, the Russian foreign Ministry has criticized such initiatives, promising “mirror response” in case of their acceptance.
Recall that the US has not let Russian diplomats to perform their duties. In particular, during the US presidential election on the 8th of November of this year, the FBI blocked the car of the employee of Consulate General of Russia in Houston, and the state Department tried to prevent employees of the Russian diplomatic missions to get to the polling stations.
Some analysts attribute the enactment of new legislation with planned Congress of the electoral Board of the United States, where the future President of the country should be elected.______________________________________________________________________
