The Russian foreign ministry has summoned the US, Canadian and UK ambassadors “in connection with gross interference in the affairs of the Russian Federation and activities that do not correspond to diplomatic status,” the ministry said as quoted by state-owned news agency RIA Novosti.

Video shows US Ambassador to Russia Lynne Tracy arriving at the foreign ministry.

Recent development: Tracy visited detained Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich in prison on Monday and said he was in good health.

“I visited WSJ’s Evan Gershkovich today at Lefortovo Prison – the first time we’ve been permitted access to him since his wrongful detention more than two weeks ago,” Tracy said in the tweet.

“He is in good health and remains strong. We reiterate our call for his immediate release,” the post said.
