US expels 60 Russian diplomats, gives them 7 days to leave
The Donald Trump-led administration expelled 60 Russian diplomats on Monday and ordered European country’s consulate in Seattle to close down.
United States and some European nations, including Britain, sought to jointly punish Moscow for its alleged role in poisoning an ex-spy in London.
Trump’s administration officials said all 60 Russians were spies working in the U.S. under diplomatic cover, including a dozen at Russia’s mission to the United Nations.
US officials said the administration took the action to send a message to Russia’s leaders about the ‘‘unacceptably high’’ number of Russian intelligence operatives in the U.S
“The expelled Russians will have seven days to leave the U.S,” said the officials. “They weren’t authorized to be identified by name and requested anonymity.”
They added that the Seattle consulate is a counter-intelligence concern because of its proximity to a U.S. Navy base.
