US claims that restrictions on the issue of visas to Russians – this is a consequence of Moscow’s actions, are groundless, said at a briefing the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.

She recalled that after Russia urged the United States to equalize the number of its diplomats to a number of Russian in the United States, the Russian Federation was made «another strange attack».

In her words, «it may also be connected with a professional level of using of those material and labor resources.»

«This is a hastily concocted story about what is allegedly the result of actions of the Russian Federation, this all has under itself no soil. In my opinion, it is obvious that this is an attempt a quick compilation of facts and explanations of those difficulties, which have been invented», — said Zakharov.
