The US Department of Justice has previously charged Branson with being a "Russian agent". She faces up to 35 years in prison.
“The claims made are outrageous and completely unfounded. This is an element of a large-scale anti-Russian campaign, which resembles a "witch hunt" in the worst traditions of McCarthyism", - the diplomatic mission said in a telegram statement.
They called the persecution of Branson a hostile act.
“We demand to stop to the persecution of compatriots”, - the diplomatic mission called.
