Russia closes American school in retaliation for US sanctions

Source: New York Post

Russia responded to President Obama’s sweeping sanctions by reportedly closing the Anglo-American School of Moscow, a facility for the children of American, British, and Canadian diplomats.

The order from the Russian government closes the diplomats’ school and the US embassy vacation house in Serebryany Bor, near Moscow, according to CNN.

The Anglo-American School of Moscow was founded in 1949 for children of embassy officials in Russia.

Students at the school are currently on winter break.

3. agreed.

What I've been reading says the Russians have been terrorizing the diplomats. Breaking into their homes in the middle of the night, turning furniture upside down, pooping on the floor... it does not seem safe even before this today.

5. They can't do their job from here, and the world would be more dangerous.

 

None would come back who are really there to serve. I would wager that most wouldn't even send family home.

Most likely, if we really do have a war between any of the US, China, or Russia, it likely won't matter where one is, especially with the Trussians in charge.

4. I happen to know that kids from at least 70 countries

attend that school. Also, there are a lot of Russian children from wealthy families who attend.

7. Time to send the kids home for the duration

Which could be quite awhile.

Putin has had his minions harassing US diplomats and embassy employees for years already.
