The U.S. State Department announced on Thursday that Russia will be required to close its consulate in San Francisco, as well as two annex buildings in Washington, D.C. and New York City, as a result of the Kremlin’s decision to force U.S. diplomats out of Russia. Moscow now has until Saturday to close the facilities in question.
The United States has fully implemented the decision by the Government of the Russian Federation to reduce the size of our mission in Russia,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said. “We believe this action was unwarranted and detrimental to the overall relationship between our countries.”
