Diplomatic mission of Russian Ambassador to Washington Sergei Kislyak distorted in the American media and placed «upside down», said Tuesday the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.

«The first thing to understand is what is happening in the American media and in particular CNN in respect to our Russian Ambassador. Person is a professional recognized — that is not something that the foreign Ministry qualifies him as a man of high qualification, professional diplomat. No, he is worldwide acknowledged as such. Moreover, the diplomatic corps in Washington considers him one of the most influential diplomats. Not just diplomats, and heads of diplomatic missions» — said Zakharov on the radio «Komsomolskaya Pravda».

According to the diplomat, «everything that makes Sergey Kislyak, distorted in us media and placed on the head.» «This flow of lies and lies, there simply is no barrier — as if the dam burst,and the lies flowed over the edge. Why are they doing this, is unclear,» — said Zakharov.

Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak for a long time portrayed in the American media as a «conduit of Russian influence». Advisor to trump on national security, Michael Flynn, resigned after the White house announced that Flynn is not fully told the US intelligence about the content of the conversation with Kislyak. In addition, the attorney General Jeff sessions recused himself from the investigation, «Russian ties» environment trump after he became aware of a routine meeting and Roman sessions with the Russian Ambassador when he was a Senator and Roman sessions.

American media, citing anonymous security sources called the dubious «intelligence officer» and «recruiter» that had been indignantly received, the Russian foreign Ministry and provoked criticism even among American diplomats. Russia has repeatedly denied accusations of U.S. intelligence in trying to influence U.S. elections, but the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov called them «completely unfounded».
