Russia expels 150 US & EU diplomats in tit-for-tat move

Russia

Russia has announced that it is expelling 150 US and EU diplomats in a tit-for-tat response after a similar number of Russian diplomats were expelled over the poisoning of an ex-spy in the UK. After conducting a Twitter poll to select which US consulate to shut down, Russia’s Foreign Ministry ordered the closure of the consulate in St Petersburg.
