Why was the Consulate General of Russia in Seattle Closed?

The closure of the Russian consulate in Seattle followed the closure of the Russian Consulate in San Francisco. 

  • For the first time since 1971, Russia no longer has a diplomatic presence on the West Coast of the United States.
  • This came after the U.S. claimed that the Russian Consulates consulates were a “hub of Russian espionage”.
  • CIA and FBI officers noted that the naval bases and large tech companies such as Microsoft, Boeing, and Amazon are all located in Seattle. The Consulate General of Russia in Seattle was dubbed a “sensible target” for Russians due to such a high concentration of tech companies and military sources.
