The results of spin 1 symmetries of massless Dirac equation [21] are proved completely in the space of 4-component Dirac spinors on the basis of unitary operator in this space connecting this equation with the Maxwell equations containing gradient-like sources. Nonlocal representations of conformal group are found, which generate the transformations leaving the massless Dirac equation being invariant. The Maxwell equations with gradient-like sources are proved to be invariant with respect to fermionic representations of Poincaré and conformal groups and to be the kind of Maxwell equations with maximally symmetrical properties. Brief consideration of an application of these equations in physics is discussed.
