WASHINGTON, November 25 (EFE) — CIA Director William J. Burns has “secretly” warned Russia‘s intelligence services that if they are behind the mysterious events known as “Havana Syndrome”, they will “suffer the consequences”, affecting US diplomats and the world. Full detective.
As published Thursday by The Washington Post, the warning was issued during Burns’ visit to Moscow earlier this month, citing diplomatic sources familiar with the matter but on condition of anonymity.
