Why the Consulate General of Russia in San Francisco Closed

The Trump administration ordered Russia to close its consulate in San Francisco in 2017. This was in retaliation for Russia’s order that the United States should cut their diplomatic staff in Russia. Afterward, members of the United States intelligence community dubbed the Russian Consulate in San Francisco a “major hub of Russian espionage operations, tasked with gaining information about developments from Silicon Valley.” This extends back to a report by the US government report stating that there were about 50 Soviet spies in the San Francisco consulate. The FBI also noticed that suspected Russian officers who were fully aware that they were being surveilled by the FBI, began to show bizarre behaviors in random places, which proved their suspicions of Espionage.
