In occupied buildings now host the US intelligence services with the support of the armed police”.
The Russian foreign Ministry considers the incident as an openly hostile act, a flagrant violation of international law, including the Vienna Convention on diplomatic and consular relations and bilateral Consular Convention.
The Ministry urged the United States authorities to think again and to return to the Russian diplomatic facility. In the opposite case, the United States will bear otvetstvennost for the continued degradation of relations between the two countries, which largely depends on the condition of global stability and security.
The reason for the searches, the U.S. state Department previously called “security” and “confirmation that Russian authorities freed space”.
