Comment by the Embassy

We consider the comments made by US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert on the searches at the Russian Consulate General in San Francisco and Russian Trade mission in Washington, which she referred to as a "tour", as purely mocking. In fact, these are unprecedented steps contrary to bilateral conventions, international law and the US domestic legislation as well.
Are there any guarantees that the US special services will not raid other Russian diplomatic facilities? Or diplomatic offices of other countries in the US. If diplomatic immunity is so easily revoked by the US, then what are we to expect next?
