"Yesterday, we learnt about a new. hostile act of the United States authorities against our diplomatic missions", Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told reporters on Thursday, warning that Moscow would retaliate.

In July, Moscow told the United States to slash the number of its diplomatic and technical staff working in Russian Federation by around 60 percent, to 455, in a further sign of souring relations.

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation has once again expressed its indignation at how the USA authorities handle Russian diplomatic facilities that had been closed in the United States in response to Russia's move to expel American diplomats from Russia.

"Unfriendly steps by the United States run counter to the claims it made earlier about its desire to restore US-Russian relations", Sputnik quoted the diplomat as saying.
