Moscow slams removal of Russian flags from diplomatic properties seized by US

The Embassy of Russia in the US has strongly condemned the removal of Russian flags from previously seized diplomatic compounds and which the State Department claims were "respectfully lowered" and "safely stored" within the properties.

The Russian Mission to the US released photos of the closed diplomatic facility without Russian state flags Wednesday.

"A strong objection was sent to the American side in the wake of the removal of Russian flags from the diplomatic property in San Francisco, controlled by the US authorities. We perceive it as an extremely unfriendly move. We demand [the US] immediately returns the Russian state symbols to their place and prevents such incidents in the future," the embassy said in a statement on Facebook.
