Russian Foreign Ministry on Flags Removal: US Destroys Relations with Russia



Moscow expressed a resolute protest to Washington in connection with the removal of Russian flags from diplomatic property in the United States, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova stated Thursday.

“Yesterday, a new, I can officially say, hostile action of the US authorities against our diplomatic institutions became known. Russian flags were torn off from buildings of the Russian trade mission in Washington and consulate general in San Francisco, earlier occupied by US security services’ agents,” Zakharova said at a briefing.

She added that Moscow regards the incident as an outrage against Russia’s state symbol, expressing that Moscow has already “expressed a strong protest to the United States.”

Zakharova said that by such actions, some US political forces were deliberately demolishing relations with Russia.

The spokeswoman went on and mentioned that Moscow “will make up its mind regarding response actions” to the steps made by the US.
