Kremlin on US’ Seizure of Diplomatic Compounds: Russia’s ‘Patience Running Out’

Russia’s patience is running out, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Monday, commenting on the seizure by the United States of its diplomatic compounds in the US states of Maryland and New York.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In December 2016, the administration of former US President Barack Obama imposed a set of punitive measures against Russia, including the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats and the closure of the two Russian diplomatic compounds. The actions were taken in response to Moscow’s alleged interference in the US presidential election, which Russia has repeatedly denied.

Back in December, Russian President Vladimir Putin decided not to respond to sanctions imposed by the outgoing US administration and act in accordance with the ties built with the new US leadership.

The Donald Trump administration is currently considering the return of the two facilities ahead of the US president’s first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G50 summit in Germany this week.

“We spoke about the principle of reciprocity. As to the fact that Russia’s patience [is running out], this was also said at different levels,” Peskov told reporters.
