U.S. Envoy to Russia Levels Hacking Charges Against State-Run TV

U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael A. McFaul confronted a camera crew from state-controlled Russian television Thursday, suggesting that they had accessed his schedule by hacking his e-mail or his telephone, The New York Times reports.

The ambassador engaged in a five-minute debate with a reporter from NTV, which has produced harsh reports attacking the U.S. in recent months.

 

He asked how reporters had learned about his meeting with Lev Ponamaryov, a human rights campaigner and opposition figure, which was not a matter of public record.

“This is against the Geneva Convention, if you are going to receive my information from my telephone or from my Blackberry,” McFaul said.
