SAN FRANCISCO, United States of America – The Russian Ambassador in Washington, Anatoly Antonov, said that on Friday he inspected the Russian Consulate General in San Francisco and the residence of the Consul General from the outside.

“I examined my building, because it’s a Russian building, it remains property of the Russian Federation,” Antonov said. 

“There was an officer there and he went up to my group and asked us what we were doing there,” he explained.

“Then I visited the territory around our building where my Consul General had lived, a beautiful building really,” he went on. “I’m glad we have properties of this kind in San Francisco. And of course I’m dreaming of how to return our properties and to resume the operations of the Consulate General because I am sure this will be useful for the U.S. and Russia in an equal measure.”

On September 2, the U.S. authorities closed down the Russian Consulate General in San Francisco and the Trade Mission in Washington on September 2 for no reason.
