Calexit Campaigners Open “Embassy” in Moscow

In what might be the most significant move made by the Calexit campaign to date, supporters have opened up what they call an “embassy” in Moscow. Although it is not so much an “embassy” as a cultural center, the creation of the establishment shows that the movement isn't all just talk: some of the people pushing for secession from the US are giving it enough thought to start engaging with foreign powers:

“We're not requesting military assistance from Russia,” Marinelli explained. “We're certainly going to request recognition of our independence and recognition of our [2019] independence referendum result, as we're going to request that the entire international community recognizes the results.”

The California independence movement gained some traction, particularly on social media, in the wake of Donald Trump’s election victory in November. It describes itself as a “nonviolent campaign to establish the country of California using any and all legal and constitutional means to do so.”

On Sunday, Marinelli added that he wishes to “lay the groundwork” for bilateral relations between an independent California and Russia.”
