MOSCOW (ALBOENEWS) — Moscow calls the U.S. decision to close Russian diplomatic sites on American soil a “blatantly hostile act,” according to Reuters. Russia says Sunday the move to close sites violates international law and is asking U.S. officials to reverse the order.
Russian diplomats are evacuating those buildings this weekend. Sites include the Russian consulate in San Francisco as well as two trade missions in New York and Washington.
