MOSCOW, 12 APR â€” RIA Novosti. Moscow demands the immediate cessation of the seizure of Russian property in the United States, which is accompanied by abusive actions, said the Ambassador of the Russian Federation Anatoly Antonov in the air of TV channel “Russia 24”.
Earlier, the buildings of departmenti in San Francisco and Washington, closed at the request of the United States, removed the Russian flag.
“The American side sent a strong protest in connection with the fact that the objects of our diplomatic property in San Francisco and the Russian trade mission in Washington lifted the Russian flag. Previously, these buildings were actually captured by US authorities. In violation of international law, bilateral agreements and us law. See this as extremely unfriendly steps, contrary to previously unheard from official Washington’s assurances in the desire to establish bilateral relationship,” he said.
Antonov noted that this only complicates the dialogue between the two countries.
“The responsibility for violation of norms of inter-state relations rests solely on the official Washington,” the Ambassador said.
