Russia: Moscow, US 'almost' resolve spat over diplomat compoundsThe Kremlin on Monday demanded that Washington unconditionally restore its access to diplomatic compounds in the United States, with a senior Russian official saying the row had “almost” been resolved following hours-long talks. Russia is angry that Washington is still barring its diplomats from using two compounds in the states of New York and Maryland. In December, then president Barack Obama ordered the ban in response to suspected Russian meddling in the US election.
