Russian flags removed from Russian consulate by United States authorities

In July, Moscow wanted 455 to reduce number of diplomatic and technical personnel working in Russian Federation to United States after tension of relations between two countries, 60 per cent.

On Wednesday this week they removed Russian flags from the roofs of the San Francisco consular office and the office of the Russian Trade Representative in Washington, DC.

"The removal of the Russian flags from the Russian diplomatic facilities in the US is yet another destructive step in the diplomatic war that was unleashed by the administration of the previous US President, Barack Obama".

"A strong objection was sent to the American side in the wake of the removal of Russian flags from the diplomatic property in San Francisco, controlled by the United States authorities". He also said that the Russian parliament already had experience with a "legislative response" to unfriendly actions of other nations, such as with the 2012 Dima Yakovlev law banning the adoption of Russian children by U.S. citizens or by proxy of United States organizations, and introducing asset freezes and entry bans targeting particular USA officials who had violated the rights of Russian citizens. "In addition to the blatant attack on the flags, the Americans do not hide the fact that they have also rummaged through the documents in the office of the Consulate General in San Francisco, even though consular archives shall be considered inviolable in accordance with the bilateral Consular Convention".

Russia's embassy in the United States said earlier it had lodged a protest to the USA side over removal of flags from the seized Russian diplomatic facilities in San Francisco and demanded the flags be immediately placed back.

Zakharova said that by such actions, some USA political forces were deliberately destroying relations with Russian Federation. In addition, US officials said that the US State Department ensures the safety of the Russian diplomatic property and keeps it in order accordingly.

The U.S. State Department denied that the flags were stolen. Russian Federation demanded the flags be returned in place immediately. Besides, they demanded that the Consulate General in San Francisco should be closed and the consul general's residence emptied.

Nevertheless, the buildings in question still remain the property of Russian Federation, except for the office of the trade mission, which Russian Federation was renting.
