Moscow demands ‘clear explanation’ of US charges against Russian lawyer

Moscow on Friday criticised the US indictment of Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya who met with officials from Donald Trump’s election campaign in 2016, demanding Washington explain the charges against her, AFP reported.

“We expect a clear and articulate explanation from Washington” of the charges, foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said, adding that “criminal cases based on unclear claims” against Russians in the United States have become a “habit” for US justice.
