The Russian embassy in the United States demanded to stop the persecution of Russian citizens

The Russian Embassy in the United States said that the claims that the United States made against the head of the Coordinating Council of Russian Compatriots Yelena Branson are part of an anti-Russian campaign.

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.

At the same time, officials are ignoring calls from the Russian Federation to grant the community rights under the First Amendment to the US Constitution.
