US-flag-700-02

60 Russian officials were expelled from US over an allegation of poisoning a former spy in Britain. Russian consulate in Seattle was also ordered to be shut.

Reports say that of the 60 officials being asked to leave, 48 are posted at the Russian embassy and 12 are at the Russian mission to the United Nations in New York. U.S administration officials said Russian officials and their families have been given seven days to leave the U.S. "The United States takes this action in conjunction with our NATO allies and partners around the world in response to Russia's use of a military-grade chemical weapon on the soil of the United Kingdom, the latest in its ongoing pattern of destabilizing activities around the world. Today's actions make the United States safer by reducing Russia's ability to spy on Americans and to conduct covert operations that threaten America's national security," reports said.
