Anatoly Antonov told Russian television that since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, one-on-one meetings with US officials have come to an end.

“It is like a besieged fortress. Basically, our embassy is operating in a hostile environment… Embassy staff are receiving threats, including threats of physical violence,” Tass quoted him as saying Did.

“Agents of the US Security Services are roaming outside the Russian embassy, ​​handing over CIA and FBI phone numbers that can be called to establish contact.”

The CIA, the FBI, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the US State Department did not immediately return messages seeking comment.

The Russian ambassador to Poland was drowned in a red substance on Monday by people protesting against the war.

Moscow expelled several US diplomats in March after Washington said it was expelling 12 Russian diplomats at the country’s UN mission in New York.
