Washington returned flags removed from the Russian consulate in San Francisco

21
Washington returned the flags taken earlier from the building of the Russian Consulate General in San Francisco, said Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov.


TASS quotes a Russian diplomat:

Yes, the flags were returned, the archive was returned from the Russian Consulate General in San Francisco
- said the diplomat, answering the appropriate question. -
However, all this is accompanied by a series of actions that are absolutely unacceptable to us. We have repeatedly protested the American side. Regarding the archives, [outrageous] acts were committed, violating their inviolability.

The diplomat also noted that the flags are one of the highest state symbols.

And such treatment of them by the authorities of the receiving state cannot be called anything other than provocative. The fact that they gave them to us is self-evident; it could not be otherwise. But everything that preceded this still causes a very sharp rejection and complete rejection.


In this connection, I would also like to say that the constant provocative steps and techniques that the American side resorts to in this sensitive area make us think that the United States is internally ready for the similar actions to be taken by their consular and diplomatic institutions. . We do not resort to them, but direct reciprocity and mirroring are allowed by international law if the country is subjected to such unacceptable and hostile actions. We warn the American side that such things are not forgotten.

        Well, there we were not informed and the opposition was not advertised, although I think they were.
        The United States is internally prepared for the fact that similar actions are perfectly acceptable to their consular and diplomatic institutions.
        And here you guessed the hell, we won’t capture the embassy, ​​we’ll let the kagnalization go back, run away yourself, and then
        - return the documents to us ..
        - and which one specifically?
        correspondence with Merkel ..
        - I’ll look for this hour ... laughing

      Most likely they poked their "bugs" wherever possible.

    I just can’t understand our leadership. Americans practically mock our country and we vote together with them at the UN for sanctions against North Korea.

    Amerikosov would have mumbled in the most severe form, and there is something to grind about. The embassy is crammed with scanners and radars, smash the file and indicate that it is incompatible with diplomatic activity. Open a couple of containers of diplomatic mail, and in the mail they have bags of cash, grants for bulk-Kasyanovs and other Shenderovichs, confiscate nafig. Yes, a lot of things can be done, the main thing is not to be afraid of any “sanctions”, “confiscations” and even the vaunted “global anarming strikes” (global disarming strikes). Americans, as children, are testing our will. International law, treaties, conventions, etc., to which we appeal, are now for them links to Chinese letters. They recognize that it is written somewhere, but it must be observed when it is beneficial. Yes, they did that before.

    Under the Union, they mirrored in such a way that the Americans woke up in cold sweat at night and hid in the bunker, and in the White House they were afraid to turn off the light. What flags are there when 30 thousand nuclear warheads are aimed at you. It now seems that 1500 is small and you can play cool Joe ... But we know that the Cuban Express is on its way ...

      Wake up:
      - The USSR has long been gone.
      - GSVG - no.
      - 300th country - no.
      And do not remember more about what is not. We live here and now. And diplomacy is the art of the possible. hi

    The mattresses simply washed them, stroked them and hung them in place. Since December, the State Department has been promising laundry and indoor cleaning services to all Russians who wish!

    This is the trick! Not even a couple of weeks have passed
    I can argue that the Americans returned the flags to our missions in half an hour, if ours had removed the Americans from their missions.
