US TO ORDER EXPULSION OF 60 RUSSIAN DIPLOMATS

Washington, D.C

 

 

 

The Trump Administration expelled 60 Russian diplomats on Monday and ordered Russia’s consulate in Seattle to close. The move was another in the United States-Europe joint punishment on Moscow for its alleged role in poisoning an ex-spy in Britain. CBS News (@cbsnews) reports, senior Trump administration officials said all 60 Russians were spies working in the US under diplomatic cover, including a dozen at Russia’s mission to the United Nations. The officials said the administration was taking the action to send a message to Russia’s leaders about the “unnacceptably high” number of Russian intelligence operatives in the US.
