Russia protests to US over consulate flags ‘hostile act’

| | Moscow

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

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

“Yesterday we learnt about a new ... Hostile act of the US authorities against our diplomatic missions,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told reporters on Thursday, warning that Moscow would retaliate.
