Russia may withdraw US diplomatic property in Moscow
Russia may withdraw US diplomatic real estate in Moscow and complicate the existence of the Anglo-American school if Washington does not give up its diplomatic property by July, withdrawn during a diplomatic scandal after the presidential election in the United States.
According to Russian diplomatic sources, Moscow hopes that the real estate issue will be resolved before the meeting of the presidents of Russia and the United States scheduled for July, while the Kremlin does not rule out the use of retaliatory measures, reports "Merchant».
In December, the 2016 44 US President Barack Obama has ordered the sending of 35 Russian diplomats from the country in response to Moscow’s interference in the presidential election.
Then the US authorities confiscated two Russian diplomatic recreation centers - in Maryland and on Long Island. Moscow did not retaliate, saying it hopes to improve bilateral relations between the countries under the new president, Donald Trump.
Now, according to diplomatic sources, Moscow wants to get its property back before Trump’s proposed meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in July at the G-20 summit in Germany.
If this does not happen, according to sources, Russia will take "mirror measures", taking control of the American diplomatic cottage in Serebryany Bor and a diplomatic warehouse in Moscow.
Also, the Russian authorities may complicate the functioning of the Anglo-American school in Moscow, changing its legal status.
The school may be required to register in accordance with Russian law. Now the institution has a special status - the school is not "ambassadorial" in the classical sense, working on the basis of a commercial contract with three embassies: the USA, Great Britain and Canada. The school does not have a Russian license, and it could be forced to “legalize”.
The list of documents for the provision of a license includes 17 items. Some of them are easy to perform: for example, the school must confirm that it has the necessary material and technical base and that it observes the fire safety rules. But with others, difficulties may arise: the school must submit a curriculum, an explanatory note to it and an educational program, which must comply with the federal educational standard of the Russian Federation.
