Moscow regards the scandal with U.S. special services bugging on offices of EU institutions as another manifestation of double standards in international law.

"We count on Washington drawing due conclusions complying with the international commitments of the United States from this scandalous story," Russian Foreign Ministry representative for human rights Konstantin Dolgov twitted on Monday.

"The wiretapping of the conversations of EU officials by U.S. special services is another manifestation of double standards in international law and human rights," Dolgov stressed.

Earlier BBC reported quoting Der Spiegel that the United States bugged the offices of EU institutions and got access to internal computer networks of employees of various EU institutions.

Der Spiegel said that former employee of the CIA and the National Security Administration (NSA) Edward Snowden revealed a corresponding document.

In the document NSA directly calls the EU a target for spying.
