State Duma speaker Vyacheslav Volodin called doubly wrong ignoring the requests of the Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Anatoly Antonov on the meeting with us congressmen.

«This is wrong, when you take and ignore such initiatives. Moreover, it’s wrong twice, because, as a rule, disregard this initiative will lead to a mirrored response to the balanced position,» — said Volodin reporters on Friday, saying the lack of responses to requests for meetings with the U.S. Congress from the Antonov.

In November Antonov said that in all his attempts to meet with the congressmen, he refused. The first meeting of the Russian Ambassador, who took office in September 2017, with a representative of the Congress took place on 22 December, when the Antonov discussed issues of Russian-American relations with Republican Senator from Wisconsin Ron Johnson.
