On August 9, Minister-Counsellor of the Embassy of the United States in Moscow, Tim Richardson, was summoned to the Foreign Ministry, where he was presented with an official protest in connection with publications on the official Twitter account of the Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs and on the diplomatic mission’s website concerning the August 3 street protests in Moscow that were not sanctioned by authorities.

It was emphasised during the meeting that the Foreign Ministry regarded the publication of the protest route map, drawn by the organisers of the illegal event, as an act encouraging participation and a call to action, which constitutes an attempt to interfere in Russia’s domestic affairs.
