The United States of America planned the detention of State Duma deputy Inga Yumasheva when she was invited to New York to participate in the Fort Ross Dialogue international forum, said Alexei Chepa, deputy chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs.
In an interview with Duma TV, the parliamentarian called the interrogation of Yumasheva cynical, unlawful and deliberate provocation by the American authorities.
“How legitimate is a frank attempt to recruit a member of parliament who officially went to the Fort Ross Dialogue forum?” This is a cynical, unlawful, deliberate provocation! We will discuss this situation on the committee and inform our colleagues in Congress. ” said Alexey Chepa.
Earlier, a member of the Committee on Foreign Affairs Yevgeny Primakov called the actions of the American authorities rudeness and disrespect for Russia.
