 Russian MFA accuses Washington of invasion after US State Department officials walk through property in Seattle

The officials of the U.S. Department of State walked through Russian property in Seattle earlier abandoned by Russian diplomats to confirm that it had actually been vacated.

Spokesperson for the U.S. State Department Heather Nauert tweeted on April 25. As reported by Censor.NET, the move triggered overreaction by the Russian Foreign Ministry. 

Moscow was outraged by such actions of the State Department. The Russian embassy accused the U.S. authorities of violating Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and promised retaliatory measures, the Russian RIA Novosti news agency reported.

"Come peruse the U.S. authorities invading campus of the Russian Consulate General in Seattle. State-sponsored property grab is a rare sight indeed," spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, wrote on social media.

On March 26, U.S. President Donald Trump ordered the expulsion of 60 Russians from the United States, including 12 people identified as Russian intelligence officers who have been stationed at the United Nations in New York.
