Russian Embassy Rejects Criticism Included In US Religious Freedom Report

WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – 04th June, 2022) The Russian Embassy within the United States has denied the US State Department’s allegations of systematic violations of non secular rights in Russia.

Protecting the rights of believers is our absolute priority. We have no religious persecution,” the embassy mentioned in a press release on Telegram.

The embassy mentioned that the standard reproaches included within the State Department’s International Religious Freedom Report launched on Thursday mirror Washington’s tendency to “arrogantly label” sure international locations to be able to have an excuse to intrude of their inner affairs.

The Russian embassy accused the US of frightening sectarian tensions within the international locations of the center East, North Africa, and the previous Yugoslavia for the sake of its geopolitical pursuits.

“Such actions have always led to conflicts and numerous victims,” the embassy pressured.
