Sep 1, 2017

In another sign that relations between Russia and the United States continue to deteriorate the U.S. has ordered Russia to close its consulate in San Francisco and cut back the number of its diplomats in New York and Washington D.C. The U.S. State Department has stated this action is in retaliation for the Russians telling America to cut its diplomatic staff in Russia in half.

The Russians have also continued to flex their muscles by flying nuclear bomb carrying aircraft close to American airspace, and fighters even closer to American military aircraft in international territory like the Mediterranean Sea.
