The Russian ambassador to the United States boasted that no one “hit the table with a shoe” during a call to the State Department
After the invaders shot down an American MQ-9 Reaper drone, Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov was summoned to the United States Department of State. He managed to justify himself for the incident and stated that no one threatened him.
So, Antonov denied all accusations against Russia. It is known that the ambassador spoke with Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs Karen Donfried.
Russia's ambassador to the United States acquitted himself of shooting down an American drone
According to Antonov, he was invited to the State Department to speak with Karen Donfried. He noted that the conversation about the downing of the drone allegedly lasted 15 minutes.
Antonov and Donfried also allegedly discussed “Russia's concerns about various aspects of US activity.” What exactly – the ambassador did not specify.
Russia is no stranger to lying and denying its criminal actions. The enemy ambassador did not confirm the guilt of the Russians, as he fears that dictator Vladimir Putin will “beat him in the hat” if he reveals the truth.
The conversation was very calm and respectful, and I categorically denied all accusations against the Russian armed forces,” Antonov disowned.
The ambassador also added that in the State Department “no one hit the table with a shoe, threatening him with something.” Of course, because only the Kremlin goblin can arrange such a thing. This is a common tactic of the Russians – to threaten, in particular, with strikes on the territory of Ukraine, as well as with nuclear weapons.
The decision to shoot down the MQ-9 Reaper was made by the Kremlin
The aggressive actions of the Russian military against the American MQ-9 Reaper drone were approved by the top leadership of the Kremlin.
“It was the intention of the Russian leadership to act aggressively during the interception,” one US official said.
However, officials have not confirmed that these actions were coordinated with dictator Vladimir Putin. Other officials declined to provide details, only saying that the decision was made at the “highest level”.
