I'm curious, does the Russian Federation ever arrest U.S. citizens of the United States in foreign countries? In my experience as a U.S. journalist, I've never know the U.S. government to apprehend someone in a foreign land, but to negotiate with the host country to apprehend the suspect. This typically begets extradition agreements. This story makes it sound as if U.S. law enforcement is grabbing Russians and smuggling them out, which I doubt is occurring.

The US continues to make its global reputation as a thug. The Jesuits/ Annunaki/ Hathor would be proud!

I live in America. I have to get my news from RT becuae the media is nothing but BS. I'm an immigrant. I just can't understand who's idea was it to let the US police the world. We don't have a good track record. Did you forget that this country, now police of the wolld has criminal history of genocide of Native American. Lets not forget that for 20 years the US supported the monster Pol Pot who makes Hitler look like a choir boy. If your a a lawenforcement you have to be able to prosecute your own starting with Bush, Cheney, Wolfowitz. They lied a nation into war.

This is just a beginning. We're descending into the cold war and there is only one party to blame this time. It's funny that one country is terrorizing whole world, including Russia. What can be done about it? As soon as possible replace trade with the US with other countries. China, Russia, Pakistan, India, Brasil and whole South America (except US fanboys) should look for alternative sources and trade partners. Unfortunately US is just at the beginning of becoming a menace to humanity. The more they're allowed to do, the more bold they'll become. Internet framework should be built outside of the US asap

Does no one understand? It is legal for the U.S. to have anyone kidnapped and returned to the U.S. for trial, even from countries with which the U.S. has an extradition treaty. Check out the 15 June 1992 U.S. Supreme Court decision in U.S. v Alvarez-Machain. Of course, the U.S. would go to war, figuratively t the very least, if any other country were to have an American kidnapped off of a street in the U.S. for trial back in that other country.

Scrap the international bodies like, UNO, ICC, Interpol & other organizations if US does not respect them! Are the rules meant for all other countries except US?
