The telephone line of the Russian consulate in the U.S. is cut off and network communication is blocked

  Overseas Network, January 20. According to a report by the Russian Satellite News Agency on the 19th, the Russian Consulate-General in New York stated on its Twitter that its telephone line has been cut off by the US since the 18th, and network connections often have problems.

  According to a Russian diplomatic source in New York, the US explanation for this was a technical problem, but the delay in the restoration of the telephone line has lasted for two days, which is "unseen before."

Allegedly, the consulate had multiple telephone lines, but they were cut off at the same time.

The consulate said that because the phone is unavailable, people can first inquire through the mailbox.

  According to reports, the U.S. government has frequently targeted Russia’s diplomatic missions in the U.S. in recent years and requested the closure of the Russian consulate in San Francisco in 2017. At that time, only two days were given to move out.

In 2018, the Russian Consulate General in Seattle was also required to close.
