Newsline: U.S. Embassy in Russia Hides Address as Trolling War with Moscow Escalates

The U.S. embassy in Moscow is using coordinates instead of an address on its website after Russian authorities renamed the square outside the building after one of the two separatist regions of Ukraine that Russia recognizes as sovereign. The embassy’s website now lists its location as 55,75566° N, 37,58028° E. However, the “Embassy and Consulates” section of the website still lists the embassy’s previous address: Bolshoy Deviatinsky Pereulok No. 8. The embassy has been contacted for comment. (https://www.newsweek.com/us-embassy-russia-hides-address-trolling-war-moscow-escalates-1721284) Moscow’s residents voted in June to rename the square outside the city’s U.S. embassy “Donetsk People’s Republic Square,” according to The Moscow Times.
