Russia assails US ambassador
Moscow: Russia`s Foreign Ministry has harshly criticised the US ambassador for his remarks at a meeting with students, accusing him of breaking diplomatic etiquette and misrepresenting Moscow`s foreign policy.
The ministry`s attack on Michael McFaul follows negative coverage given to him by state-run television stations.
The ministry on Monday targeted McFaul for saying that Russia had offered money to the leader of Kyrgyzstan for removing a US base from its soil, saying his description of this and other issues was "deliberately distorted”.
The ministry also accused McFaul of misrepresenting Russia`s stance on such issues as the Iranian nuclear standoff and North Korea`s nuclear programme.
Asked about the attack on his Twitter, McFaul avoided responding directly, saying he is "still learning the craft of speaking more diplomatically”.
