Russia accuses U.S diplomats of regularly trying to access restricted military areas

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday that U.S. diplomats regularly tried to get into restricted military areas.

She was commenting after Moscow said earlier on Thursday it would issue a formal note of protest to the United States after it caught three U.S. diplomats in what it said was a restricted area near a closed military testing site.
