According to the head of the Duma commission to investigate the facts of interference of foreign states in the internal affairs of Russia, Vasily Piskarev, the website and accounts of the American diplomatic mission on social networks have long gone beyond their functions and “regularly post political information of a destructive nature.”

“We regard such actions as interference in the internal affairs of our country,” Piskarev is quoted as saying on the commission’s Telegram channel.

Earlier, Russian Ambassador to Washington Anatoly Antonov called US sanctions a cynical attempt to interfere in Russia's internal affairs.
