Russia Orders the U.S. to Reduce Its Diplomatic Staff in Russia

Russia has ordered the U.S. to reduce its diplomatic staff in Russia amid rising tensions between the two countries, Bloomberg News reports.
“The Russian side is suspending the use of all storage facilities on Dorozhnaya Street in Moscow, and a cottage in Serebryaniy Bor by the US Embassy in Russia as of August 1,” the ministry said in a statement.
Russia had originally threatened the ouster of diplomats and seizure of property in December after the U.S. ordered 35 Russian envoys out of the U.S. in protest of alleged Russian meddling in the election last year.
