US Ambassador Sullivan allowed the closure of embassies in Moscow and Washington

US Ambassador Sullivan allowed the closure of embassies in Moscow and Washington

Sullivan allowed the closure of the embassies in Moscow and Washington in response to a related question and appreciated this possible solution. If it comes true, it will be a “big mistake”. According to the ambassador, it is hardly possible to meet adherents of closing embassies in the US administration.

“I can imagine the only reason why the US could be forced to close its embassy: it could be if it would not be safe to continue its work,” he stressed.


The diplomat recalled that earlier Moscow had warned of the danger of breaking off relations with Washington. He noted that such a situation would mean the closure of embassies both in Russia and in the United States. Sullivan expressed the hope that this would not happen.

“I assure you, this is not coming from the United States. This is not the intention of President Biden or the US government. And there’s not much more we can add on this topic right now. For three months we have been in a situation of completely, as it seems to me, changed relations, ”concluded the representative of the American side.


Earlier, Sullivan assessed the likelihood of a complete rupture of relations between Russia and the United States. He ruled out such a scenario
