Even the Russian Foreign Minister"s office says they entered Iraq without a visa.

But whatever, it is quite an unplanned adventure for them.

Who care what they doing in Iraq, Russia's Foreign Ministry representative have no right to criticize Russian citizens who are under arrest in other country. Firstly, Russian citizens should be freed, and then FM representative can open his mouth about what they did wrong. If FM representative like to kiss the asses of Iraqis, then he should do that in his private time, but not during a work time. The bastard should be sacked.

Spies or not spies - doesn't matter, FM is obliged to help you. It seems, even Zimbabwe can do more for its citizens who are in trouble abroad. Want to go abroad - accept American passport. In this case you will be sure that somebody will help you in trouble. Russian passport? Leave it home, Russian embassy doesn't care about you and your troubles.

It seems you don't know what you are talking about. American embassy always helps any American fools in any foolish troubles. If the state do not help its citizens abroad - nobody will respect this state. This is Russia's case.

You seem to know about it from American movies but the reality is different. Embassy can`t help when someone commits a crime abroad.

I know it from real life, but you simply prefer to deny the facts. American embassy is doing their work - to help American citizens. Even if they can't help - they'll try. Russian embassies usually do nothing, or work in interest of the countries where they're located, instead of Russian interests. We can close 95% of our embassies and save the money.

When you're trying to help your arrested citizen - you don't accuse him in anything until he is free. You should constantly say that he is innocent even if it isn't so. If you accuse him - you simply help the opposite side, kissing the asses of the arabs who arrested him. And we know that there are a lot of people in Russian Foreign Ministry who love to kiss the asses of their foreign colleagues.

If he is guilty - you can punish him later. By yourself. By your law. That's how any respectable country act. I don't know any other state whose FM representative will be idiotic enough to publicly accuse its citizen when this citizen is arrested by other state.

When the U.S. government learned of Powers' disappearance over the Soviet Union, it issued a cover statement claiming a "weather plane" had strayed off course after its pilot had "difficulties with his oxygen equipment."
