Moscow to respond if U.S. closes Russian Visa Center

Moscow, Jun 22 (Prensa Latina) Moscow will undertake relevant responsive measures if the United States implements a decision on closing the Russian visa center in the U.S., Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova told Sputnik on Saturday.

“In case such measures are implemented, the Russian side will give an adequate response,” Zakharova said, commenting on the US decision to close the Russian visa center.

Earlier in the day, Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov told reporters that the US had notified Russian diplomats that both offices of the Russian visa center in the US — in Washington and New York — were closing.

Antonov also said that it deprived Russian diplomats of the possibility of not paying taxes in the United States. He also alleged that the U.S. authorities provided no explanation for their actions.
