The Kremlin does not agree with the charges of creating obstacles for the expulsion of American diplomats as difficulties with the departure of the Silver forest are connected with certain rules for heavy vehicles, said the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov.

«Better ask the foreign Ministry, but there is a story surrounding the trucks. Take the truck some «Gazelle», and try to enter the Silver forest. You will not let go. So it has nothing to do with this story, actually no, because there are certain rules, indeed, the entry of large vehicles in the Silver forest. So here in this case it is impossible to agree with such accusations,» — said Peskov.

On Monday evening the head of the press service of the U.S. Embassy in the Russian Federation Maria Olson told RIA Novosti that us diplomats have already two days do not have access to the cottage in the Silver forest. The Russian foreign Ministry noted that there are perceived «as a deliberate provocation by the U.S. Embassy charges that he allegedly prematurely blocked access to the country».
