Russia expels 60 U.S diplomats in retaliatory move

Russia has expelled 60 United States diplomats and closed the country’s St Petersburg consulate in a tit-for-tat response to U.S action over a spy poisoning case in the United Kingdom.
The moves were announced by the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov.

The BBC reports that the decision comes amid a row over the nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy and his daughter in southern England.

Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious on a bench in the city of Salisbury on March 4.

More than 20 countries have expelled Russian envoys, in solidarity with the UK, which blamed Moscow for the attack.

Russia has vehemently denied any involvement in the incident.

Mr. Skripal remains in a critical but stable condition.

His daughter’s condition is said to be improving.

Mr. Lavrov said the U.S ambassador had been informed of “retaliatory measures.”

He said they included “the expulsion of the equivalent number of diplomats and our decision to withdraw permission for the functioning of the U.S consulate general in Saint Petersburg.”
