"I have also seen these comments made by Russian officials, which are factually inaccurate, and Moscow knows that all too well. However, we're not interested - the United States is not interested in having a public debate on the issue. We believe that this is best handled in private government-to-government discussions. That's how we're going to continue to do this," Kirby said, answering the question about the Russian ministry of foreign affairs spokesperson Maria Zakharova's comments regarding the situation.
Washington Post reported that in the early morning of June 6, a uniformed Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) guard stationed outside the U.S. Embassy in Moscow attacked and beat up a U.S. diplomat who was trying to enter the compound, according to four U.S. officials who were briefed on the incident.
The Russian foreign ministry said that the diplomat is a known CIA agent under guise returning from an intelligence operation.
