Please share and comment.

President Trump is deciding on whether or not to allow Russia to return to their diplomatic compounds.

abcnews.go.com reports: The U.S. and Russia will sit down together again for a high-level meeting to deal with "irritants" in the relationship, amid heightened tension over diplomatic compounds in the U.S. that belong to Russia.


Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov will meet with U.S. Under Secretary of State Tom Shannon in Washington Monday –- the highest level meeting since the two countries' presidents, Trump and Putin, met at the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, on July 7.

The top issue on the table for Russia are those diplomatic compounds, or "dachas," in Maryland and New York. The Obama administration expelled 35 Russian diplomats and their families and cut off Russia’s access to the dachas in response to cyber-attacks on the 2016 election. But Russia has been losing its patience with the Trump administration, threatening to retaliate if the compounds are not returned soon.
