Foreign Ministry did not rule out the closure of one of the US Consulate General in Russia

46
Moscow does not rule out any options for responding to the situation with Russian diplomatic property in the United States, including the possibility of closing one of the US consulate generals in Russia, said the director of the North American department at the Russian Foreign Ministry, Georgy Borisenko.


As for the answer, we said, including publicly, that in diplomacy there is an inviolable principle of reciprocity, and the Americans are well aware of this. If they behaved in this way, it means that they agree that we can do mirror with their overseas agencies in Russia
- transmits his words RIA "News».

Foreign Ministry did not rule out the closure of one of the US Consulate General in Russia


The diplomat noted that specific measures in Moscow will be considered and applied, "if necessary."

At the same time, Russia does not exclude any options: neither the closure of one of the US Consulate Generals, nor the establishment of real parity in the number of embassies and consulates staff. He recalled that the 455 people who were counted as Russian employees in the United States included diplomats who work in the Russian permanent mission to the UN in New York.

The fact that in the summer we counted the people working at the permanent mission of Russia to the UN was purely our goodwill. We actually gave the Americans a head start, went to meet them. Since they did not appreciate this, we have every right to deduct from this 455 figure the amount that corresponds to the number of employees of our permanent mission.
- declared Borisenko.

In early October, the Russian Foreign Ministry announced a strong protest against the seizure of the Russian consulate general in San Francisco. The facility was closed on September 2, and then searched.

The US Department of State explained the reason for the penetration of the Russian consulate general in San Francisco by the fact that the time allotted for the Russians to live there expired, Washington withdrew consent to the placement of diplomatic missions, which means the buildings cannot enjoy immunity, Glance reports.

          "Two words -" it's high time. " Yes, no matter how! Our Foreign Ministry can only give Americans a head start, not take retaliatory steps (with the obligatory mention that we could), but express empty regrets. In short, they streamline ours from head to toe, but they cannot give an answer, moreover, all retaliatory measures are exclusively in the "partner" and polite language and only in words

            Are you for shattering a vigorous bomb at them? Only in polite language and in words tell them that within 72 hours they would take their manat from a representative office in Yekaterinburg or Vladivostok and wander off, overlooking the ocean. yes And with a vigorous bomb, let’s surely beat it.

              Why a bomb? They threw out our diplomats - they must be thrown out. Depress property was squeezed out - they must be squeezed out, on the same day. And 72 hours is 3 days, during this time you can collect things and make local lovers happy at parting. Our soft-skinned, everyone wants to help and seem good. It’s so disgusting

                Ha! This would close the Yeltsin Center and limit the activities of Mormons in Russia! The very thing that Russia would have to do for its national security!
                In China, Mormons were already banned when John Huntsman worked there as a "diplomat" - and they did the right thing!
                And then, after all, the new US ambassador to the Russian Federation, John Huntsman, is first a Mormon, then a scout, and then only a diplomat without illusions.

                What for? On the same day? So that later they showed a finger at Russia - here they are. Drive out our diplomats. Indeed, nowhere in the media will it pass that this is the answer. Yes, and the GDP has shown itself to be a very competent player (but Lavrov does not make a decision on certain actions, not Lavrov at all). After all, the reduction of American diplomats was not announced as a reduction. They were asked to LEVEL the number of diplomats in the United States and Russia. And if they agreed to accept our 700, no one would have sent them .... So here. Why rush, rush is good ....

          But it seems that they are not involved in issuing consular visas in St. Petersburg and Ekatirenburg after another exchange of sanctions. And if in St. Petersburg you can still somehow dissuade the consular escort of US citizens, then what the employees of the consulate in Ekatirenburg do is incomprehensible! so it’s really up to the support of all kinds of “republics”! hi

      Well, my friend, why so abruptly? It can be much simpler: to accept ALL "state" "diplomats" - not at Sheremetyevo, not at Domodedovo, or at Vnukovo - but ONLY at Belbek A / P (well, to the region - at A / P "Simferopol") ....
      And the Consulate (for example from Yekaterinburg) - THERE SHOULD be transferred .......

    Why is that one? Close everything ... we are at war with the Anglo-Saxons, and they have voiced this more than once. So I don’t understand why to make up honest geltelmen from ourselves.

        Really ... Where? Why not rush? Or is it necessary to substitute a cheek instead of a savory blow, for the purpose of prevention?
        It’s not an option that "Revenge is a dish served cold ..." No. Here is a reasonable principle of action: "Road spoon to dinner" ...
        If you move at a snail's pace, you have to live 300 years. Human life is trivial to short to leave for tomorrow someone who can be kicked out today. So re-read the classic:
        And boring and sad, and no one hand to give
        In a moment of spiritual adversity ...
        Desires! .. what is the use in vain and eternal desire? ..
        And the years go by - all the best years!
        To love ... but whom? .. for a while - it’s not worth the effort,
        And it is impossible to love forever.
        Do you look into yourself? - there is no trace there:
        And joy, and torment, and everything there is insignificant ...
        What is passion? - because early il late their sweet affliction
        Disappear at the word of reason;
        And life, as you look with cold attention around, -
        Such an empty and stupid joke ...

    Here are our strange diplomats. It is necessary to do already and not to think and wait when they will return everything back.
    The main thing will be the subject of bargaining. We will have time to return the amers forever. And now give the same 72 hours for training. To feel the difference, so to speak. And then almost satisfied with the wires.
    Rudeness must be tougher to respond, otherwise they think that it should be so. When they change their attitude then it will be possible to talk. And then just like children persuade. Zakharova is especially annoying already.

    in diplomacy there is an unbreakable principle of reciprocity and the Americans are well aware of this.

    Which was clearly carried out in Soviet times and the Americans then really knew this. What today? Partners must understand, “we express concern,” etc. Yes, the Americans have long put on our concern. Even Ukrainians are already laughing at it.

    Exactly, for sure ... I listened to knowledgeable specialists on this subject and so I realized that if he deals with Mormon affairs, he will have no other time ... because Mormons, at one time, were "combed" with us not weakly because they considered (some people did not like) the harmful and unnecessary community in our country.
    However, the contingent in the embassy may shake up and bring in assistants on the topic. Let's see, listen to how it will be.
