Russia will have to take retaliatory measures in connection with the U.S. actions in respect of diplomatic property of the Russian Federation. This was stated by the head of the international Committee of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev. He also noted that it is not a choice of Russia, these measures will be forced, but they should be.
In this case the Russian side, apparently, has no choice – there comes a time response, – quotes RIA Novosti words Kosachev.
We will remind, earlier it was reported that the States are not going to return the Russian diplomatic property without getting “something in return”. However, as already stated press Secretary of President Dmitry Peskov, the return of departmenti can not stipulate any conditions, because it is contrary to international law. According to Peskov, this situation is a serious test for the patience.
Even in the period when the US President was Barack Obama, was denied access to suburban “summer cottages” of the permanent mission of the Russian Federation in new York and the Russian Embassy in Washington.
Today, as expected, there will be talks, Deputy foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov and US Undersecretary of state Thomas Shannon. They should discuss the situation with the Russian departmentu. Note that to date no retaliatory measures for the arrest of departmenti and the expulsion of Russian diplomats, the Russian Federation was not accepted.
