Lavrov: Seizure of Russian diplomatic property in US is ‘daylight robbery’

If Washington refuses to return Russian diplomatic property it seized it would be “daylight robbery,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

Lavrov was referring to a RIA Novosti report on Monday which cited a high-ranking unnamed White House official as saying that the US is not planning to return the diplomatic property to Russia without asking for “something in return.” 

Is that source [the high-ranking official] anonymous?” Lavrov asked, while speaking to journalists on Monday. “So, I believe that their conscience is unclear. As for the issue [not returning the Russian diplomatic property without any preconditions], I consider it daylight robbery,” he said.
