“From the point of view of the work of the diplomatic department, this is quite a sensitive thing to do. Because more than a thousand employees – diplomats and technical workers – have worked, still work in Russia, and now 755 will have to cease their activities in the Russian Federation”

On July 27, the US Senate passed a law on tightening sanctions against Russia, Iran and the North Korea.

Later, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement according to which Moscow suspended from August 1 the use of the US Embassy holiday home complex in Serebryany Bor, as well as all warehouse premises on Dorognaya Street.
