(International: Euphrates News) The Russian Foreign Ministry announced on Monday that the US party continues to violate the sanctity of diplomatic headquarters in the United States, in violation of international law and the United States in particular.
In support of these statements, the State Department posted on its Facebook page a video showing two members of the US security services searching under the cover of darkness for an entrance to the Russian consulate in San Francisco.
Washington informed the Russian side on 31 August that the consulate building in San Francisco and the commercial office building in New York should be evacuated by September 2.
The White House said the measures were a response to Moscow's decision to expel more than 150 US diplomats from Russia.
The US authorities began on September 2 to "inspect some Russian diplomatic headquarters", which Moscow considered an "illegal seizure of Russian property," vowing to take the necessary countermeasures.
