Revenge! Russia Expels 35 US Diplomats
The issue between Russia and the Obama administration has been on and the Russians only await the retirement of President Obama from the White House.
President Obama had some days ago expelled some Russian diplomats for their 'malicious' involvement in the US elections and in response, Russia expelled 35 American diplomats.
The diplomats expelled include 31 personnel of the embassy in Moscow, and four consulate general in St. Petersburg, as announced by Russia's Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov on Friday.
We, of course, cannot leave unanswered the insults of the kind, reciprocity is the law of diplomacy and foreign relations.
Thus, the Russian Foreign Ministry and officials of other authorities have presented to the Russian president suggestions regarding announcing persona non grata 31 personnel of the US embassy in Moscow and four diplomats from the Consulate General in St. Petersburg.
The Outgoing US administration of Barack Obama accusing Russia of all mortal sins, trying to blame us for the failure of its foreign policy initiatives, among other things, has put forward additional accusations without any grounds whatsoever that the Russian state was behind attempts to meddle in the US election campaign, which led to the defeat of the democratic candidate.
