Axar.az reports citing Sputnik.

Russian flags were "respectfully" lowered by US officials at former Russian properties in Washington, DC and San Francisco, when the buildings were closed, a US Department of State official told.

"The flags at the former Russian consular properties in San Francisco were respectfully lowered and are safely stored within each of the buildings," the official said on Wednesday. "The flag at the former Russian Washington, DC property was also taken down and is safely stored within the building."

A third Russian government property in New York was a suite in commercial building and did not have a flag, the State Department official added.
Earlier in the day, the Russian embassy in the United States confirmed that flags had been removed from the Russian Trade Representation in Washington, DC.

The Russian embassy in Washington, DC said that Russia strongly opposes the US move to take down Russian flags from its ceased diplomatic properties in San Francisco, and sent a protest note.
