Russia: Neighbours of US Consulate in St. Petersburg leave farewell letters as staffers pack and leave

Russian passionate neighbours left a farewell letter to the US Consulate staff who are leaving at the request of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia in St. Petersburg, Saturday. The footage features how a neighbour holds a letter where it is written — «[the letter is written for ] the Honourable Consulate General of the United States and all the staff of the US Consulate General on its... Еще farewell day with hope to see you soon again.» The consulate was ordered to close as a tit-for-that measure after the US announced on Monday it would expel 60 Russian diplomats and close the Russian consulate in Seattle. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov made the announcement on Thursday in response to the expulsion of Russian diplomats from the US, Canada and a number of European Union member states over the Skripal case.
