Fires at Washington mission and San Francisco consulate, both ordered to close by the US, prompt speculation Russians were burning documents

Russia’s foreign ministry has summoned a senior US diplomat in Moscow to hand him a note of protest over alleged plans to conduct searches in the trade mission complex in Washington, the ministry said in a statement claiming the United States had threatened to “break down the entrance door”.

The ministry said the protest note handed to Anthony Godfrey, deputy chief of mission, described the planned “illegal inspection” of Russian diplomatic housing as an “unprecedented aggressive action” that could be used by the US special services for “anti-Russian provocations” by the way of “planting compromised items”.
