OREANDA-NEWSThe failure to issue US visas to the delegation of the Federal Treasury of the Russian Federation for participation in an international conference is another blow to bilateral relations, which will not remain without consequences. This was stated to reporters on Wednesday by the head of the Federation Council Committee on Foreign Affairs Konstantin Kosachev.

“Of course, this is another blow to our bilateral relations, which will not be without consequences. And when the next excuses from Washington will be heard on the topic“ Russia first started ”(and such information in all seriousness still hangs on the website of the US Embassy in Moscow) and other wonders why one of the Americans will not be allowed to return to our country, I think it will be necessary to recall this case as well. But in any case, the initiators of such reprisals in Russia just have nothing to do so far: sober up - we'll talk", said Kosachev.

In September, a number of representatives of the Russian delegation to the UN General Assembly were not issued an American visa. Among them are Konstantin Kosachev, head of the Federation Council’s committee on international affairs, Leonid Slutsky, head of the State Duma’s international affairs committee, Dmitry Rogozin, general director of Roscosmos, and 10 Russian Foreign Ministry employees.
