Russia Strongly Opposes Russian Flag Removal From Closed San Francisco Consulate

Russia Strongly Opposes Russian Flag Removal From Closed San Francisco Consulate”

Moscow may respond to Washington's anti-Russian sanctions both at the diplomatic and legislative level, Leonid Slutsky, the head of the Russian State Duma's (lower house) International Affairs Committee, said on Thursday.

Another "shameful" event in the row over the Russian diplomatic properties in the US.

"The fact that in the summer we took into account the people working for Russia's mission at the United Nations, this was good will", Borisenko told RIA. USA officials have since occupied administrative parts of the compound. The demand followed a vote to tighten sanctions on Russian Federation.

However, the lawmaker said it was early to speak about any particular plans on preparing such an initiative.

The Russian embassy and US State Department were not immediately available for comment.

Russian flags were "respectfully" lowered by US officials at former Russian properties in Washington, DC and San Francisco, when the buildings were closed, a US Department of State official told Sputnik.

Earlier on October 11, Russia's Foreign Ministry repeated a threat to demand further cuts in the number of USA diplomatic personnel in Russian Federation, also with the goal of achieving parity, after ordering a cut in US personnel to 455, effective last month. The US officials conducted an all-out search in the facilities.

Russian Federation was ordered to vacate its San Francisco consulate and two other consular annexes after Moscow instructed the U.S.to reduce its diplomatic mission by hundreds of people. Russia's Embassy in the United States said earlier it had lodged a protest to the U.S. side demanding the flags be immediately placed back.
