The consular residence of the Russian Federation in San Francisco was closed on Monday as the October 1 deadline for vacating the site expired. The US made the decision to close the Russian consulate in retaliation for Moscow’s decision to reduce US diplomatic staff numbers in Russia, which in turn followed additional US sanctions.
