Russia will expel at least ten US and three Polish diplomats from the country. The country is also studying more countermeasures to the sanctions announced by the United States. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov came up with this message on Friday.
In addition, at least eight US government officials will be placed on the sanctions list, and “painful measures” against American companies are being considered in Russia, Lavrov said. Moreover, Moscow is looking to end the Russian activities of American funds and NGOs that would interfere in Russia’s internal affairs.
On Thursday, the United States announced that it would expel ten employees of the Russian embassy in Washington and announce sanctions against more than 30 Russian or Russian institutions.
And US banks will no longer be allowed to trade in Russian government debt. These measures were taken, among other things, due to Russian attempts to influence the 2020 US presidential election.
After the United States, Poland announced on Thursday that it would expel three Russian diplomats.
