Lavrov: Moscow preparing crackdown on US government-run institutions in Russia

Russia’s foreign minister said Moscow is considering retaliation for Washington’s seizure and violation of its diplomatic property in the US

AMMAN, September 11 (Sputnik) – Moscow will bring the working conditions of the Russian diplomatic missions in the United States and US missions in Russia to full parity, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Monday.

“The United States… as it were… said: if the Russians want parity, then they should close one of the four consulates general, because we have only three consulates general in Russia,” Lavrov told reporters.

“If they have taken parity as a criterion, we are now considering the conditions in which US foreign institutions operate in Russia and the Russian ones in the US.  And we will bring these conditions to full accord with what is called parity,” he said.
