USA never gave Russia a formal congratulations with the Day of Russia, said at a briefing on Thursday the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, assuming that «they are confused».

Earlier, the Russian Embassy in the U.S. confirmed that for the first time in many years received congratulations from the American authorities with the Day of Russia. The U.S. state Department explained in turn that the administration of Donald trump changed the process of formal greetings, and now, under the new approach, official congratulations are transmitted via the U.S. Embassy in their respective countries.

«After we heard all of these public statements, it appeared that the U.S. Embassy in Moscow no of congratulations to the Russian state authorities not passed», — said Zakharov, answering the question, congratulated all the same States Russia holiday.

She recalled that Americans usually in an informal manner placed such greetings and congratulations on the website of its foreign Ministry. In principle, as pointed out by Zakharov, it is inconsistent with standard diplomatic practice, which involves a formal transfer of congratulations with a specific addressee and signature.

According to her, with a congratulatory address to other countries continue to be posted on the Department website. «From the beginning of June Washington congratulated via the Internet and Italy, and Sweden, Georgia, Azerbaijan, great Britain, Portugal, Philippines congratulated. That is the impression that once again, colleagues confused: whether they are confused about what practice to practice, whether entangled in explanations. It is very difficult to understand what is happening there, the situation is funny,» — said Zakharov.

«What if they don’t know what they have on the website hanging, or trying to justify ignorance of Protocol. Very difficult to understand,» — said the official representative, also assuming that «can be, in these conditions, the global anti-Russian panic just literally afraid of some kind words to say about Russia».
