The Foreign Ministry announced an attempt by the United States to recruit the head of the bureau of the Russian media
The FBI agents tried to recruit the head of the correspondence center of one of the Russian media, the Foreign Ministry said. Washington is also trying to interfere with the work of journalists who do not cover events the way the United States would like, according to the department
Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of the United States tried to recruit the head of the correspondent office of one of the Russian media outlets in Washington, according to a comment by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova.
According to Zakharova, the United States is trying to make it as difficult as possible for the activities of Russian accredited journalists or intimidate them into leaving.
“The next example of this unprecedented pressure was two “approaches” agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation to the head of the bureau of one of the Russian media in Washington. The goal is obvious— unbalance the journalist and try to involve him in compromising “collaboration”,— said the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. “Didn't work,” — she said.
The pressure, according to Zakharova, is subjected to correspondents who cover events “not in the way that Washington agitprop would like.” The Ministry of Foreign Affairs demanded an immediate end to the “treatment of Russian journalists” by providing them with normal working conditions in accordance with “free speech standards.”
In March, the Washington Post reported that the FBI used Russian-language advertising on social media Google platforms to persuade employees of the Russian embassy in Washington to cooperate. The secret service allegedly expects that some of the staff of the diplomatic mission does not support the military operation in Ukraine and therefore wants to help American intelligence.
Targeted advertising appeared when using mobile devices only on the territory of the embassy and in the immediate vicinity. A person interested in the advertisement can follow the link in the advertisement to the page of the FBI counterintelligence program, where potential informants are invited to visit the office of the bureau.
