Russia’s (Manufactured) Umbrage At Flag Removal From Former Consulates

As I scrolled through TASS this morning, I noticed 5 articles about how angry Russia was with the US about removing the flag from the buildings that used to be their consulates.

“Russia did not give permission”.

So?  The US Department of State told Russia that those buildings were not going to be used as consulates again, period.

I guess it’s supposed to be a big thing, or Russia is just flailing about trying to be angry at something, anything.

Amazingly, Sputnik News defended the US Department of State’s actions.


Take insult at anything appears to be the new Russian trend.
