Moscow is furious that us intelligence agencies passed to the press details about the banking transactions of the Russian diplomatic missions, it is a violation of the Vienna Convention, said Thursday the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.

«Causes indignation the transfer of U.S. intelligence to the press of data on Bank transactions to the address of diplomatic missions of Russia, and not only in the US and around the world. This is done in an effort to give new impetus to the promotion went out of myths about the Russian intervention in last year’s elections in the United States, which now refers to the transfers from Moscow through Citibank for the election campaign (the Duma) in 2016. I say again: this is not a cute fakie, this is misinformation,» Zakharova said at a briefing, commenting on the publication Buzzfeed.

Earlier, BuzzFeed reported that the FBI is investigating the translations of the foreign Ministry of the Russian Federation to Russian embassies in dozens of countries amounting to more than 380 thousand dollars, with indication of purpose of transfer «to conduct pre-election campaign». BuzzFeed did not take into account the possibility that it was about the vote in the Duma elections abroad, and hints that it is about «Russian intervention in elections in the United States.» RIA Novosti does not yet have a review of the FBI.

«Even more serious and disturbing moment is another violation in this case is prescribed in the Vienna Convention on diplomatic relations norms on the treatment of our official representatives. Publication of the financial statements indicates that grossly violated not only the privacy of Bank information, but also the integrity of accounts of the Russian Embassy», — said Zakharov.
