The United States will dismiss more than 180 employees of diplomatic missions in Russia

The United States will be forced to dismiss 182 employees of its diplomatic missions in Russia due to Moscow’s ban on hiring citizens of the Russian Federation and third countries to work in American consulates. This was stated by Secretary of State Anthony Blinken. 

As Blinken explained, the layoffs will affect branches in Moscow, Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok. 

The Secretary of State stressed that the United States “regrets the actions of the Russian government,” but will try to “maintain a predictable and stable relationship.” 

The Russian government in May recognized the United States as a country committing “unfriendly actions” towards Russia. Such countries are prohibited from hiring Russian employees to work in their diplomatic missions. In addition to the United States, the Czech Republic was also named an “unfriendly” country. 

US Ambassador to Russia Joe Sullivan said that from August 1, when the ban on Russians working in consulates begins to operate, the United States will completely stop providing consular services in the Russian Federation due to the reduction in the number of employees.
