Expelled US Envoys Have Left Russia, Says State Dept

Washington (April 06, 2018): The Russian State Department has said on Thursday, that the 60 US diplomats who were expelled by the state amid a diplomatic crisis triggered by the poisoning of a former spy have left the country.

On the other hand the US spokeswoman has also confirmed that, “This morning 60 American envoys left Russia in compliance with the Russian government’s unwarranted decision to declare them persona non grata.”The Americans were ordered out by President Vladimir Putin’s Kremlin after Washington responded to a nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy in Britain by expelling 60 Russians.

Meanwhile, Washington alleged that the Russians 48 attached to the Russian embassy and 12 to Moscow’s UN mission were intelligence agents working under diplomatic cover.In respond, Moscow denies this, just as it denies having any hand in poisoning former double agent Sergei Skripal on British soil. Washington insists the expelled Americans are State Department employees.
