At the New York airport, the FBI interrogated a State Duma deputy

On October 5, 2019, State Duma deputy from United Russia Inga Albertovna Yumasheva, who flew to the United States to participate in the Fort Ross Dialogue Forum, was interrogated by an FBI officer for more than an hour at the New York Airport. After which he suggested that the Russian woman continue communication in an informal setting. This was announced by the Ambassador of Russia to the United States, Anatoly Antonov. The Russian Foreign Ministry on this issue has already expressed a strong protest to the American side.

It should be noted that Inga Yumasheva (born in 1985) is the daughter of a major Russian businessman Albert Yumashev, engaged in business in the oil sector. Before being elected to the State Duma, she was a television and radio host for a long time, and worked as a journalist. What the FBI claims to her were, is not specified. At the same time, Inga Yumasheva herself refrains from public discussion of the details of the interrogation.

As Antonov specified, the deputy was asked "absolutely incomprehensible, obscure and unacceptable questions." At the airport, she was “asked to go to a separate room”, where she was interrogated. After that, the Russian embassy sent a note of protest to the US State Department in connection with the "unacceptable and outrageous" actions of the FBI, hoping for an explanation about the "probing approaches to the deputy." Antonov emphasized that it was difficult for him to imagine if the Russian special services had detained someone from the Senate or the House of Representatives of the US Congress.

They would take them to a separate room, would begin to interrogate, and then the relevant representative would offer to drink coffee somewhere in one of the nearest restaurants of Sheremetyevo.

- the ambassador said.

It is emphasized that Inga Yumasheva has made a lot of efforts to develop and stabilize relations between Russia and the United States. And the interrogation can be considered an attempt to disrupt the Fort Ross Dialogue (conducted since 2012), because in the US there are senior officials who oppose the development of US-Russian relations.

    And this is another fact and indicator, by which it is time to really stop all flights to them. They don’t bring anything good anyway. And start to assess the situation already.

      Is there a strong protest now? No more concern ??? I imagine if a USSR deputy was detained somewhere, a missile carrier was immediately sent there. Which country was killed by Yeltsin and Co.
      1. The Soviet Union was respected, and after the collapse of the Union and the drunken tricks of Borka the Unshakable, Russia was simply despised. We learn to live under the shkonki!

      ... it's time to really stop all flights.

      But what about movable and immovable property. Of course, as a deputy, this lady is an absolute besperebrennik and a fighter with everything and everything, and for all the best, but as the daughter of her dad, she has the right to visit the country without any unnecessary searches.

        And here you already need to make the final choice, either you are there, or here, and there is no third.

        ... has the right to visit the country.

        Everyone has the right to visit their country, only the consequences of this are deplorable for many, and to prevent this from happening, it is high time to put a bullet over them.

          ... the final choice ...

          I think that many Russian "citizens of the world" who have several passports, something earned by "backbreaking work", as well as a certain influence in the upper circles, will fundamentally disagree with you. bully

          ... everyone has the right to visit them ...

          Everyone may have the right, but not everyone gets the opportunity to use it. hi

            If you could, you probably would have used it first, right? hi

    In fact, an adequate and asymmetric response would be much more useful than a decisive protest and deep concern. Something like this.

    Our embassies are being searched, but then the deputy was detained. Grit your teeth and bear it. Putin and Lavrov are white and fluffy. They will not be likened to blue.

    The protests of US diplomats do not give a damn for a long time, but treating the Yankees in the Russian Federation just like they do with the Russians would be an effective measure ... The same applies to Bandera and Basmachi ... It’s time to deprive them of all human rights on the territory RF!

    We must somehow draw attention to ourselves, but now they showed it on TV. Moreover, as "persecuted" by the most strategic partner. At the very least, he will be able to win a prize, or maybe a medal.
    I wonder if this evil FBI agent managed to figure out how to get into the authorities by vertical take-off.
    Maybe the poor agent generally tried to find an approach and intermarry with the oil business, but now he will lose everything.

    As always, we accidentally learn that the oligarch’s daughter, a deputy, naturally, EDRA, drives forums in the USA, despite sanctions, bonds and real estate ...

    I wouldn’t have been a daughter, nobody would have scratched myself ...

    By the way, New York across the country from Fort Ross ....
