Russian President Vladimir Putin called the behavior of the United States “unprecedented” during his speech at the press conference on the outcome of the ninth summit of the BRICS. The reason for this assessment was the arrest of diplomatic property of Russia on the territory of the United States. According to the head of state, he instructed the foreign Ministry to prepare a lawsuit on this issue. The President proposed to see how effective the “vaunted American judicial system.”
We are talking about U.S. demands to close three diplomatic: Consulate General in San Francisco, of the Russian trade representation in Washington and new York. We will remind, earlier (late last year) have already been closed residence of Russian diplomats at the Embassy in Washington and permanent mission of Russia to the UN in new York, which is used for recreation, receptions and cultural events, the complex diplomatic vacation home in Maryland and residence in the coastal town of Oysterbay.
According to General Director of the Center for political information Alexei Mukhin, the US “will lose a civilized person so flaunt it”. He noted that from a legal point of view, the claim should be satisfied. Thus, the United States will be forced to admit their illegal actions.
“Speaking about the lawsuit, Vladimir Putin realized that for good reason,” commented the expert, “MK”. In his opinion, if the American court decides to “out” those that will not accept the claim of the Russian side for consideration, the reputational damage would not be less.
“How to get out, I don’t know if, for example, trump will publicly apologize to Russia during his speech in the UN, then the incident may be closed without bringing to the court”, – added the analyst.
Recall also that, speaking at a press conference, the Russian President stressed that Moscow reserves the right to reduce the number of personnel of the American diplomatic missions in Russia for another 155 people. “But we don’t do that. Let’s see how the situation will develop further”, – said Putin.
