MOSCOW – The Russian Embassy in the United States sent a note of protest on Sunday to the Department of State after a Minneapolis police officer pepper-sprayed RIA Novosti reporter Mikhail Turgiyev in the face.
“A note of protest has been sent to the State Department over this revolting incident. We demanded that they conduct a thorough investigation and inform us about its results”, Ambassador Anatoly Antonov said in a statement to the press.
The Russian Foreign Ministry said earlier it was concerned about increasing police brutality and unjustified arrests of journalists covering protests that broke out in the United States after the death of black man George Floyd.
