    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - Russian diplomats visited a US detention facility and confirmed that Russian national Maksim Suverin was in satisfactory condition, the Consulate General in New York said in a statement.

    "The Consulate's diplomats visited Russian citizen Maksim Suverin in a New York detention facility," the release said on Tuesday. "Suverin described his health condition as satisfactory."

    Suverin is one of several Russian citizens recently detained by the FBI on charges of wire fraud and money laundering.

    Previously, the US Department of Justice released the names of four Russian nationals arrested by the US authorities in Los Angeles, California and Boston, Massachusetts.
