MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The head of the Russian Community Coordinating Council (RCCC) in the US, Elena Branson, has told Sputnik that the charges brought by Washington against her are absurd and far-fetched.
Earlier this week, the US Justice Department said that a New York federal court had unsealed charges against the dual US-Russian national for allegedly acting as an illegal foreign agent of Russia without registering with the US government.

"I consider the accusations that were brought against me to be baseless, absurd and far-fetched", Branson said.

The RCCC head said that she had been actively involved in the life of the Russian community in the United States over the past 10 years and partaken in various projects to preserve the Russian language and the cultural and historical heritage of Russian Americans, as well as the development of humanitarian ties and dialogue between citizens of the two countries.

"My public activities were open, transparent and non-political, and information about all ongoing events was published on websites and social networks," she added.

When asked whether she considers the US charges to be part of a campaign against Russia, she replied in the affirmative.
