Statement from the Press Secretary Regarding Russia’s Expulsion of American Diplomats
Russia’s action today to expel American diplomats marks a further deterioration in the United States- Russia relationship. The expulsion of undeclared Russian intelligence officers by the United States and more than two dozen partner nations and NATO allies earlier this week was an appropriate response to the Russian attack on the soil of the United Kingdom. Russia’s response was not unanticipated, and the United States will deal with it.
