US ambassador to Russia visits American detained on spying charges

U.S. Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman visited a U.S. citizen detained in Russia, expressed his support for him, and offered the embassy’s assistance, a State Department official told ABC News.

It was a strong show of support for Paul Whelan, who was arrested on Friday by Russian authorities and accused of spying by Russia’s Federal Security Service, or FSB.
