Seriously: The USA is interfering in the Russian peoples protests. Could you imagine what would happen in the USA if Russia did this. This is a list below, posted by the USA of the illegal protests and it is being published by the US Embassy, on the Embassy site as a warning for Americans to be careful. And why would Americans be at such a protest? Not even the opposition posted this information. Yet the US Embassy posted it!

There is protocol and the USA breaks such protocol time and time again all over the world. You do not and did not find the Russian Embassy in the USA saying anything before and during the riots at the White House recently! They did not post information for the opposition, like the US does constantly in Russia and other countries…
MOSCOW, January 23. /TASS/. US diplomats will have to give explanations at the Russian Foreign Ministry after the US embassy in Moscow published “the itineraries of protests” in the Russian cities, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told TASS on Saturday.
“Yesterday the US embassy in Moscow published ‘the protest routes’ in Russian cities and injected the information about a ‘march on the Kremlin’. What was that: a setup or an instruction? Even the organizers had not announced these plans,” she said.
“The US diplomats will have to provide explanations at the Russian Foreign Ministry,” she added.
“We can imagine what could have happened if Russia’s embassy in Washington had published a map of protest routes with destinations, for example at the Capitol. This kind of orienteering should have ended up with a global hysteria of American politicians, including Russophobic slogans, the threats of sanctions and the expulsion of Russian diplomats,” the diplomat added.
The Russian Foreign Ministry said earlier that the information, posted on the US embassy’s site, about the times and locations for unsanctioned rallies was going beyond concern for US nationals in Russia. Moscow would view the attempts of the US embassy in Moscow to “cover” the unauthorized rallies in Russia as interference in internal affairs, the ministry warned.

NED PRICE, STATE DEPARTMENT SPOKESPERSON
JANUARY 23, 2021
The United States strongly condemns the use of harsh tactics against protesters and journalists this weekend in cities throughout Russia. Prior to today’s events, the Russian government sought to suppress the rights to peaceful assembly and freedom of expression by harassing protest organizers, threatening social media platforms, and pre-emptively arresting potential participants. This follows years of tightening restrictions on and repressive actions against civil society, independent media, and the political opposition.
Continued efforts to suppress Russians’ rights to peaceful assembly and freedom of expression, the arrest of opposition figure Aleksey Navalny, and the crackdown on protests that followed are troubling indications of further restrictions on civil society and fundamental freedoms. Russians’ rights to peaceful assembly and to participate in free and fair elections are enshrined not only in the country’s constitution, but also in Russia’s OSCE commitments, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and in its international obligations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
We call on Russian authorities to release all those detained for exercising their universal rights and for the immediate and unconditional release of Aleksey Navalny. We urge Russia to fully cooperate with the international community’s investigation into the poisoning of Aleksey Navalny and credibly explain the use of a chemical weapon on its soil.
The United States will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our allies and partners in defense of human rights – whether in Russia or wherever they come under threat.
MOSCOW, January 23. /TASS/. US diplomats’ attempts to encourage radicals are doomed to failure and will have negative implications for the Russian-US relations, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Saturday, commenting on the posts published by the US embassy in Moscow on social media.
“The US should address its own problems, including the handling of the profound split in American society caused by social injustice, inequality and persecution of dissent,” the foreign ministry said. “The attempts of the US diplomacy, which ignores all decency, to actually incite the radicals are doomed to failure and will have negative consequences for bilateral relations.”
It was pointed out that the senior diplomats of the US embassy would be summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry.
The ministry stated that the US diplomatic mission in Moscow had again shown disregard for diplomatic norms and rules.
“In fact, it means encouraging violent actions hypocritically announced as a peaceful protest, in which the organizers cynically involve even minors,” the Foreign Ministry added.
I realize that for you in people in America this does not matter that the US Embassy is “running riot” for the opposition in Russia and many other countries, but it does matter to the rest of the world. It matters to me…
America! Fix your problems at home and you have many more problems than 99% of the worlds countries have…
The USA does not want China & Russia as hardcore enemies. They as with Iran and many others are trying to stay away from a dying empire, yet if the US keeps this up….repercussions are going to get bad…
I foresee that the USA wants to cut ties with China and Russia very soon. I suspect that the USA desires Russia to expel Embassy people first. The tactics used are classic asshole illegal moral and financial tactics by America…
Russia is correct, if Russia had published things like the USA Embassy did and has done many times before. My God the screaming that we would hear!!!!!
