MOSCOW, February 21. /TASS/. The US Embassy in Moscow is demanding that the Russian authorities should grant it immediate consular access to the founder of the Baring Vostok investment fund, Michael Calvey, who was arrested in the case of embezzling 2.5 bln rubles from Vostochny Bank. That is according to the statement of the US diplomatic mission in Russia published on its website on Thursday.
“The Russian Federation’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has not yet complied with the terms of our Bilateral Consular Convention and has not allowed us to provide consular assistance. We have expressed our strong concern about this delay through diplomatic channels. We insist on access now,” the statement said.
