To bring the number of diplomatic and technical staff working at the US embassy in Moscow, at the general consulates in St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok, in exact accordance with the number of Russian diplomats and technical staff in the United States. This means that the total number of personnel employed in US diplomatic and consular offices in the Russian Federation is reduced to 455 people.
- said in a statement the Russian Foreign Ministry.

          I do not find the answer of Russia to the USA quite adequate!
          Russia offers the United States to remove its employees at their discretion.
          But Russian diplomats from the USA were expelled before the New Year from the USA at the discretion of the US special services!
          Well, where is the ADEQUATE reflection of US actions by Russia ?! He, in my opinion, is not! Again a diplomatic weakness - again diplomatic concessions with a democratic liberal raid!

        In my IMHO it’s good, but not enough. I read many times that Trump is struggling with Congress, which prevents him from establishing relations with the Russian Federation. That is, it turns out that all the harm comes from Congress. Why don't our lawyers study the sanctions document. Surely there will be criminal intentions from the point of view of international and domestic law that will allow criminal cases to be instituted against the congressmen who voted for the sanctions, as we did for the leaders of the Kiev junta. With all the outwardly seeming idiocy of such an action, it is worth noting that Russophobic congressmen travel to Ukraine right up to the forefront in the Donbass. I think that they would begin to beware, and this is image damage.

        I digested this matter and the question arose. Great at first glance, the answer is more. than symmetrical. American diplomats in the Russian Federation are estimated at about 1000 people, that is, they are aimed, as it were, at reducing the number of "diplomats in civilian clothes." But in reality, I’m afraid that the State Department will keep the “diplomats in civilian clothes” and reduce the technical staff of the consulates, thereby causing difficulties in obtaining visas. Why do we need this? It was necessary to specifically indicate which of the embassies we are sending. and do not give consent to send new "diplomats in civilian clothes", which of them are "civilian" and who is really a diplomat can be calculated with good probability.

          And with regard to "diplomats in civilian clothes" - consider that every first - if you make a mistake, then not much.

        When bringing the number in line (with the Russian diplomatic corps in the USA), about 700 diplomatic and technical workers from US embassies and consulates, including about 2000 family members, will go home.
        The answer to the expulsion of 35 diplomats has not yet been given. we did not reduce the staffing of our diplomatic mission in the USA, which means 35 diplomatic workers will be sent later if the US does not change their minds.

      Full statement by the Foreign Ministry
      [/ quote] Statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation

      On July 27, the US Congress completed the voting procedure for a new law that tightens sanctions on Russia. This once again confirms the extreme aggressiveness of the United States in international affairs. Hiding behind its “exclusivity”, the US arrogantly ignores the positions and interests of other states.

      It is well known that the Russian Federation has done and is doing everything possible to normalize bilateral relations, develop ties and cooperation with the United States on the most important issues on the international agenda, including, above all, the fight against terrorism, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, drug trafficking, illegal migration , cybercrime, etc. We proceeded and proceed from the fact that world problems can only be effectively resolved jointly. We are sure that most people on the planet share this approach.

      At the same time, the United States, under the completely far-fetched pretext of Russia's interference in their internal affairs, is persistently carrying out gross anti-Russian actions one after another. All this is contrary to the principles of international law, contrary to the provisions of the UN Charter, WTO rules, elementary standards of civilized international communication.

      In the United States, decisions are made on unlawful sanctions against the Russian Federation, Russian diplomatic property seized in legally binding bilateral documents is seized, and Russian diplomats are expelled from the country. This clearly violates the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and generally recognized diplomatic practice.

      The adoption of the new sanctions law clearly showed that relations with Russia have become hostage to the internal political struggle in the United States itself. In addition, the new law sets the goal, using political tools, to create unfair competitive advantages for the United States in the global economy. Such blackmail aimed at limiting the interaction of foreign partners with Russia poses a threat to many countries and international business.

      Despite the constant attacks of Washington, we behaved and behaved responsibly and restrainedly, and so far have not responded to overt provocations. However, recent events indicate that Russophobia and a course for open confrontation with our country have entrenched themselves in well-known circles of the United States.

      - In this regard, we offer the American side until September 1 this year. to bring the number of diplomatic and technical staff working at the US Embassy in Moscow, at the consulates general in St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok, in exact accordance with the number of Russian diplomats and technical staff located in the United States. This means that the total number of personnel employed in American diplomatic and consular offices in the Russian Federation is reduced to 455 people. In the case of new unilateral actions by the American authorities to reduce the number of our diplomats in the United States, a mirror response will follow.

      - The Russian side has been suspending from August 1 the use by the US Embassy in Russia of all the storage facilities on Dorozhnaya Street in Moscow and the dacha in Serebryany Bor.

      We reserve the right to reciprocate other measures that may affect US interests. [Quote]

      He also noted that 190 people are working at the Russian embassy in Washington, while the US embassy in Moscow has 1100, possibly hinting that the number of Americans who are asked to leave the country will be greater than the number of Russians expelled from the United States . [quote]

    It is wrong to give this as a response to sanctions, it is a response to the New Year’s show off of a monkey, and sanctions must be prepared for sanctions. For example, an eternal ban on companies from the United States working in Russia in the mining sector, introducing a ban on the import of cars produced and used on the territory of the United States, but a lot can be thought of.

        And so I knew that there would be someone who would say “diplomatic language” ... in diplomacy, between the request and the demand the difference is even greater than in everyday communication ... for example, with the traffic cop ... since everyone knows that when they ask, then the request can be rejected ... and when they demand then they put an ultimatum ... what's the ultimatum? What will the Russian Federation do with diplomats? Will send? Then why is it not indicated immediately in the message? Are you reinsured? Recently, so often all these requests did not end in any way that you are already beginning to get a grasp of the details of such messages ... for example, they shot down an aircraft of the Russian aerospace forces ... a direct act of aggression ... the result ...? Have you answered? That’s why I’m reading about such trifles to know exactly how it will end ... they will send me a pleasant surprise ... but for now I doubt it very much, especially given the deadlines ... they will be sent within 24 hours ... and then they gave me a month ... again, why? Here is an example right there with the property ... nor any months after a week of "buy-by" ... here everything is clear ... albeit with a crazy delay ...

          If you read carefully and so well know “diplomatic language”, you probably noticed that the US ambassador was handed not a diplomatic note and not an ultimatum, but a statement by the Russian Foreign Ministry. I think this is why they are offering, leaving the United States an opportunity for negotiation or an independent determination of the list of diplomats subject to expulsion. But that would not have much relaxed and felt the seriousness of the moment - from August 1, the cottage and warehouses at the castle, and then we'll talk. I think that if they don’t agree, then after September 1, American diplomats will be sent forcibly (according to the FSB lists).
          In my opinion, the Foreign Ministry made a strong move and, unlike the United States, made it very intelligent.

            This is all similar to the situation when the gopnik in the gateway squeezed the mobile, and such a jerk goes home after that and loudly declares to the whole yard, saying that we are still getting even ... and this cam is waving towards the side street ....

            In my opinion, the Foreign Ministry is trying to concoct a beautiful mine in a bad game ...

            I mean, the United States has clearly not been afraid of the Russian Federation’s response to any provocation for several years ... if it doesn’t bother military hamsters, then I think that this has a reason ... if they behave this way, they are sure that they will be afraid of it nothing ... in any case, they always did this in their short history ... and mind you, they were mistaken only in Vietnam ...

    Oh, what is it with our Ministry of Concern? Has the BSD woken up? Burns napalm
    We offer to the American side
    and then completely barbarism
    From August 1, the Russian side suspends the use by the US Embassy in Russia of all storage facilities on Dorozhnaya Street
    . Where will the pi-ambassadors be scrubbed? Okay, the restaurant bosses, but where are the rank and file and technical staff? Probably, as dear Russians, they will switch to surrogates from chain hypermarkets.
    But not everything is as tough as it seems. Until September 1, a lot of time for the Foreign Ministry to turn back and even turn around. I won’t be surprised if it will be so

        From August 1, the use of storage facilities on Dorozhnaya Street and a summer cottage in Serebryany Bor is suspended, and until September 1, time is given to reduce the number of diplomatic and technical staff in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok to 455 people.

      At last !!!! . And after all, these are not some kind of aggressive, illegal actions, these are MANDATORY retaliatory actions, RULES. Which exist in diplomacy for hundreds of years.

      The thing is that now the universal choir of Western suffering will begin. New aggressive actions are also possible.
      Why? After all, this is only a response.
      I explain: because these actions did not take place immediately.
      Here we rejoice - how self-possessed our autocrat is ... and the Russian retaliatory measures are simply incomprehensible in the West.
      In many Western countries, the law states that if you instantly respond to some unjust action. Even if it exceeds the damage suffered, you are right and not responsible. But if some time has passed and only after that you decide to answer - you bear the full and primary responsibility for this.
      For example, you suffered as a result of another person’s actions, if you instantly reacted (struck back), you do not bear any responsibility, but if you remained silent and then struck your own blow, this is not provoked aggression. And then shout as much as you like that “he first started, and I only answered” ... only you will be judged.
      This is already in the Western mentality.
      You must respond to provocations in time. You did not answer right away - that means you, by law, agree with this. And do not sing that you are good, and then strike in six months.

I already thought that everything would again be limited to the concern of the Foreign Ministry, but Vladimir Vladimirovich pleasantly surprised this time. 3,14ndos will be furious and will again send someone out of ours, and we must respond symmetrically to them in the future. Anti-Russian hysteria will definitely lead to a break in diplomatic relations, which I can only welcome. Producing new liberals without the participation of American diplomats will be quite difficult, and I would have sent the well-known white painters to my uranium mines for life.

    URGENT: US Embassy in Russia was left without a cottage and warehouses

    URGENT: US Embassy in Russia is left without a cottage and warehouses | Russian spring
    The Russian Foreign Ministry announced the suspension of the use by the US Embassy of all storage facilities on Dorozhnaya Street in Moscow and a summer cottage in Serebryany Bor.

    “On August 1, the Russian side has suspended the use by the US Embassy in Russia of all storage facilities on Dorozhnaya Street in Moscow and the dacha in Serebryany Bor,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

    The US Senate passed a law on sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea on Thursday. Earlier this week, the US House of Representatives adopted the document by an overwhelming majority (419–3).

    Now the law will be sent for signature to President Donald Trump, who has the right to veto it. To overcome the veto, the congress needs two-thirds of the votes in each house, which, based on the results of the vote, is very likely.

    In addition, Moscow proposed that Washington reduce the number of diplomats by September: to leave 455 employees of diplomatic and consular institutions in Russia - the same number of Russian diplomats are in the United States.

    “In the case of new unilateral actions by the American authorities to reduce the number of our diplomats in the United States, this will be followed by a mirror response,” the Russian Foreign Ministry emphasized.

      The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is such an organization that differs in a deeply disregard for the citizens of the Russian Federation (well, as the GUK of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation for military personnel).

    It will not be enough (c) the United States is trying to block our energy supply to Europe, shorten the lending period of our banks, prohibit the supply of equipment and technology related to offshore projects, not to mention the arrest of diplomatic property and the expulsion of diplomats. And if we respond to the latter almost symmetrically (expulsion of diplomats and a ban on the use of storage facilities and cottages in Serebryany Bor), what about the rest? Okay, we can’t answer economically, but we can stop cooperation on urgent topics: DPRK, Iran, Syria, disarmament treaties, finally recognize unrecognized republics, etc. there are many options, the main desire.

    What they gave a month to dry-utruska, taking into account how many “diplomats in civilian clothes” are there, from what special services and funds they sit there, what was stored there in warehouses, and multiplied by the number of deportees — this will be a glorious gasoline to an American friendly family the establishment! They will be there for a month to argue about, especially not far off our presidential election, in which the Americans are so accustomed to "not interfere."
    Someone might think, they say, “Trump is a pity,” but that's how it works, that our interest is in the general weakening of the United States, ideally - the breakdown into several (5-6) independent and warring states.
    That is, a mirror of their interest in us. Therefore, we do not feel sorry for either Trump, or Tilerson, or any of the main bosses.

    Only embassy staff, in only one - five hundred people .. And everyone is eating more than just bread and butter !! In order to serve one such thing, we don’t have enough ten hard workers to harbor .. I think a hundred people in the country work only for one such embassy employee with his family .. And this is not even counting the initial capital expenditures ..
    And how many other peacekeepers, military commanders, advisers and the rest of all garbage around the world .. and everyone gets far from the average salary in the country .. I’m silent about the army itself, the warrior, the development ..
    The amount in my head comes up horrific .. in terms of each "attendant" who brings income to the treasury .. For example, how many locksmiths do you need at the machine to process / dress / shoe / feed each such ambassador .. and even fill the pool with clean water ..

    And now, when Russia did not rest against the number 35, and proposed to bring the total number of US diplomats with their number in Russia, then damn it, probably now the hair on the ass pulls from surprise.

    This is the correct article, read:
    Alexander Roslyakov. We bravely kicked out American diplomats. To your oligarchs - hands are short


    Oh joy! Russia, in response to the hostile attacks of the United States, dealt a crushing blow, identifying several hundred American diplomats for expulsion. Now, as our patriots have fun and rejoice, America certainly will be disgraced with grief and resentment!

    Everything can be. Although it may not be ...

    But I would hit even harder - and not only in the States, but also in all the enemies of sovereign Russia: I would send all the Chinese nails from it to hell - and I would rivet my own! Now it would be a blow so a blow - under the very breath of adversaries: they would have swayed things from such an unprecedented for the last 25 years!

    For, as they say, a jug got used to walk on the water - there he will be full!

    Today's own nails, tomorrow irons and trousers - so close to their seeds of potatoes and chicken eggs for poultry farms ... And then why turn Russia? Having become at least 51 percent self-sufficient, it will not send, but will send all these diplomats to their mother! And she herself will impose sanctions on anyone who turns to her without due respect: well, try to do without Russian titanium, steel, gas, fertilizers, and so on! ..

    But due to purely internal reasons, and not imposed by the AMs, we cannot do this in any way - that is, start our own nails. This will be the nail in the coffin of our entire offshore raw material oligarchic system. Today we will grow up with our nails and eggs, and tomorrow we will want to have our own national elite, the “red oligarchs” - so that they are squeezed out of the country, like lemon, by billions not in foreign countries, but in our aircraft industry! With the surnames not Usmanov or Abramovich, but Morozov or Tretyakov.

    But this will already be a real revolution, even if it’s peaceful, but we have the strictest taboo on all of this. And even the most patriots, until their knuckles turn blue, clutch the slogan of the great idler Stolypin: “You need great shocks, and we need great Russia!”

    Anything - but no shocks! This refers to the upper class, these nits that have sucked into the body of the nation. The lower class can shake and languish as much as it fits.

    Everything can be changed - but only so that essentially nothing changes: the Usmanovs and Abramovichs peacefully rob the "great Russia", the people peacefully are silent and vote for the current system. And no nails!

    They loudly slammed the embassy door to the delight of the public, who adored all kinds of New Year crackers, kicked out these diplomats - and absolutely nothing has changed in the country. Full status quo.

    Those who are loudly pushed out through the door will then quietly crawl, as has already happened more than once, into the window that he opened by our offshore democracy and the elite, whose families and vicious stockings are firmly seated abroad.

    There were no eggs, and never will be.
