The US Embassy in Moscow and the German news station Deutsche Welle have taken an unusual interest in Russian elections. How would Americans react if a Russian news agency encouraged US citizens to "go out on the streets?" Transcript: US Ambassador John Huntsman and the leadership of the German television and radio broadcasting company Deutsche Welle have been invited to Okhotny Ryad.

The German channel tweeted "It is our civic duty to go out on the streets." It's hard to see as this anything other than a call to violate the law. That's what the Foreign Ministry said, actually. Now it's the senators who are wondering who can benefit from this abroad.
