Russia expelled ten American diplomats
Russia declared ten employees of the US Embassy in Moscow persona non grata. The Russian Foreign Ministry handed the corresponding note to the Deputy US Ambassador Bart Gorman.
These employees must leave Russia by May 21. The Foreign Ministry called this measure a mirror response “to the hostile actions of the American side against a number of employees of the Russian Embassy in Washington and the Russian Consulate General in New York, who were unreasonably declared persona non grata.”
