Russian Federation to demand United States to reduce diplomatic personnel to 300 or below

Moscow has lodged a protest with Washington, accusing U.S. officials of tearing down Russian flags from two of its diplomatic missions in the country, the foreign ministry said Thursday.

The Russian Foreign Ministry slammed Washington for removing its flags from Russian diplomatic properties in the United States, and said "Washington deliberately destroys relations with Moscow".

In late August, the United States ordered Russian Federation to close its consulate in San Francisco and two other installations as relations between the two former Cold War enemies took another dive.

"As current geopolitical realities become tougher, when the United States start an unprecedented enlargement of anti-Russian sanctions and fixed this move in the form of a law it would be very logical from our side to introduce some counter-measures", he added.

Russia vehemently opposes the USA move to take down Russian flags from its ceased diplomatic properties in San Francisco, the Russian embassy in Washington, DC said in a statement on Wednesday.

Russia protested to the United States on October 11 over a claim that Russian flags were "stolen" from its vacated consulate in San Francisco, a charge immediately disputed by the U.S. State Department.

"We consider such a move as an extremely unfriendly step", the post, which was accompanied by photos of the former consulate building stripped of flags, said.

The MP noted that, when Russian Federation had told the United States to cut the numbers of its diplomatic mission's staff, it reserved the right for additional reciprocal measures.

"We demand an immediate return our state symbols to their place and prevents such incidents in the future".

The latest diplomatic spat is the latest twist in tortured ties between the U.S. and Russian Federation, which have slumped to their lowest point since the Cold War following the Kremlin's seizure of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.
