US ambassador expelled from Russia

226

Russia did not delay the sanctions for long, announcing the introduction of retaliatory restrictions on American restrictions. Russian sanctions will affect both US diplomats and US officials.


According to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, today, on April 16, a list will be published, which will include eight American officials from the Joe Biden administration who will be banned from entering Russian territory. In response to the expulsion of ten Russian diplomats from the United States, Russia is expelling ten employees of the American embassy. According to Lavrov, several American funds that "interfere in Russian politics" will also be closed.

In addition, US Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan was advised to travel to Washington to conduct "serious and detailed consultations." Today he was summoned to the aide to the President of the Russian Federation Yuri Ushakov, where he received these "recommendations". In other words, the American ambassador is expelled from Russia.

The Foreign Ministry promised to publish a full list of retaliatory measures later. Earlier in Moscow, they promised to answer in a mirror image and not to delay the answer for a long time.

There was no recall of the ambassador from Washington with the subsequent expulsion of the US ambassador even during the Cold War.

We will remind that on the eve of the US President Joe Biden signed a decree on the introduction of sanctions against Russia. As part of the newly imposed sanctions, Washington is expelling ten Russian diplomats, claiming they are all undercover Russian intelligence officers. In addition, the United States prohibits American companies from directly purchasing Russian debt securities issued by the Central Bank of Russia, the National Wealth Fund (NWF) and the Treasury Department.

By the way, Poland is also preparing a "response" - three Polish diplomats will fly home.

        It was high time not to "leave the window of opportunity", but to understand that the United States would never agree to an equal dialogue and to act on the basis of this undoubted fact. But in the corridors of power there are too many of those who cannot utter the word "west" without aspiration.

        Thanks to the Americans for gradually depriving their supporters of influence in the Russian government.

          And all because of the incapacity of Biden.

            all of them are Russian intelligence officers

            Any employee of any embassy is by definition associated with intelligence. In more or less degree.
            So the text of the accusation is not important. The goal was to deteriorate the relationship.

                  So during the Cold War, opponents respected each other and observed diplomatic decency. And now America has completely lost its shores, and the rest, looking at the hegemon, sing along as they can

                    So during the Cold War, opponents respected each other and observed diplomatic decency.

                    US diplomacy has a certain unique difference from everyone else. The US State Department is officially one of 17 services that make up national intelligence. And it ranks second there after the CIA. In a number of countries, for example in Iraq, for a certain period the same person can combine work as an ambassador with work as a resident. Similarly, the frames. They quite smoothly flow from the CIA to the State Department and back. We have these two departments, the Foreign Ministry and the Foreign Intelligence Service, are divorced, despite the fact that some intelligence officials use diplomatic cover. But not all diplomats are necessarily scouts. In any case, this is how they teach in diplomatic universities. Although, I must admit that the statement sounded somewhat vague. The term "intelligence-related" can be interpreted very broadly. Including a simple tea party and a discussion of a hockey match.

                      That is, a priori all of them can be expelled for intelligence activities.

                        Not necessary. Simply, when establishing relations with them, one must bear this in mind and impose appropriate norms and conditions on the possibility of their activity within the borders of our country.

              Here the author has a mistake - our five dogs were "released". laughing
              But the prohibitions:
              1.to work for Russians in the embassy and consulates,
              2.limitation of up to 10 per year on temporarily seconded embassy workers,
              3. denunciation of the agreement according to which the embassy workers could wander around the country without restriction,
              this is not just a blow to the "glands", but, finally, a really blatant response to the ugly violations of the Vienna Convention that the United States committed against our diplomats. good
              All together, this is, in fact, a complete blocking of the work of state embassies and consulates.

                  My version appeared:
                  1. Direction of the main attack: AHL (that's why NATO pulled 40 - to cover the coup, so they threw the Czechs "under the tank" to plug the failure).
                  2. Zelensky, as he could, portrayed a diversionary maneuver (therefore, when VVP told Biden that clause 1 had failed, the States returned the destroyers, so such a howl in Europe - withdraw the troops).
                  Conclusion: there should not be a war in Donbass, according to their plans (at least now). There was no need.
                  But what we have in the plans - we will soon find out. hi

                    And it seems to me that several scattered actions were being prepared, coordinated in time. Presumably:
                    - a coup with the murder of Lukashenka,
                    - Krajina-U attack on LDNR,
                    - resumption of the war in Karabakh, up to the war for the Erivan Khanate,
                    - a possible shake-up in Central Asia,
                    - possible aggravation in Syria,
                    - the beginning of unrest in several regions of Russia itself.
                    But point # 1 was stopped in time, the plans were revealed ... and?
                    But what will be done next, I think we'll see soon. In any case, the United States and the West as a whole crossed the red line - an attempt on the life of the legitimate president and his entire family (and the planned genocide of all his supporters) ... a state allied with Russia ... this is War. And the statement that Russia will not tolerate any threat to its security from the territory of the post-Soviet space, and will eliminate this threat ... suggests that the time has come for action.
                    And the post-Soviet space is not only enraged Ukraine, but also:
                    - Baltics,
                    - Georgia,
                    - Azerbaijan (if the ardor does not subside) ...
                    But you never know who else.
                    Time to collect stones.
                    And the Foreign Ministry's response to the demarches of the Czech Republic and Poland is an example of this.
                    But mobilization is needed ... at least under the guise of regular gatherings of reservists.

Now they want to restore "historical justice" ... But for the sake of the same justice - the historical, Kara and Erzurum regions of Russia are in no hurry to return.
                        Stretching Russia on several fronts is the dream of the former partners. With the Land Forces numbering only 280, there is not much to fight on multiple fronts. Even if Rosgvardia is involved in the issue, which outnumber the Ground Forces.
                        It is necessary to mobilize another 300 - 000 people so as not to expose other areas. You can't fight with PMCs alone.

If you mean the Russian government, then write that, we do not live in the states, we can do it.

        Yes, fullness to you, before, too, the go-ahead was given not childishly. In 2016, mattresses, on the New Year's Eve, expelled almost 4 dozen of our employees of the diplomatic corps (if I am not mistaken 36-38 people) for which in 2017 ours expelled 700 employees of their diplomatic corps (together with servants and servants up to 3 thousand people) , leveling the number of diplomatic representatives in the amount of 455 people from each side. Agree, the ratio of 36 to 700 is not mirror at all.
        What is characteristic, given the number of our diplomatic corps, mattresses include those 150 people who represent Russia in the UN, i.e. actually having a slightly different status. To be fundamentally precise, we can cut the number of their diplomatic representatives in Russia to 300 people, which will correspond to their diplomatic status. The UN is the UN. So these 10 mattresses sent out are not the limiting number in the "mirror" equivalent, and our Foreign Ministry has room to expand, to make it a little more painful, but apparently they are holding it until a suitable occasion.

              Most likely it is. Previously, the Emperor could break off diplomatic relations (declare war), for example, the Ottoman Empire. But he knew exactly what the Empire would receive in this case, and it received (well, except for the Crimean War of 1854, but then RI had a weak diplomatic corps and intelligence, they missed the possibility of England's intervention), but now declaring war is an unpredictable result. From "blitzkrieg" to "the whole world to dust" ...

There was a scandal similar to 2017. and ours did not send out ambassadors, but reduced the staff of the American embassy staff (and this state is approved by the host country).

    There was no recall of the ambassador from Washington with the subsequent expulsion of the US ambassador even during the Cold War.

    In the years of the Cold War, there was another diplomacy, there were no random people either in the USSR Ministry of Foreign Affairs or in the US State Department, but now we have thieves, and they have businessmen ...
    After such a foreign policy between the United States and the Russian Federation, it is necessary to start "cleaning the stables," and to dismiss the heads of the Russian Foreign Ministry and the US State Department .... they are not paid for such a policy ...

    Russian Foreign Ministry statement on retaliatory measures in connection with hostile actions by the United States
    from the source:

    In strict accordance with the Vienna Conventions on Diplomatic Relations and Russian legislation, including the Labor Code, measures will be taken to completely end the practice of hiring by US diplomatic missions administrative and technical workers from among citizens of the Russian Federation and third countries.
    In connection with the systematic violations by the US diplomatic missions of the rules for traveling through the territory of the Russian Federation, the 1992 bilateral Memorandum of Understanding regarding the "open land" is terminated.
    It means to end the activities in the Russian Federation of American foundations and NGOs controlled by the State Department and other American government agencies. This work, which has been carried out for a long time and systematically, will be brought to an end, especially against the background of the fact that the United States does not intend to reduce the scope of its subversive efforts, carried out systematically and relying on an extensive legislative base.
    It is obvious that the current extremely tense situation implies an objective need for the ambassadors of both our countries to be in their capitals to analyze the situation and hold consultations.

      Russian Foreign Ministry statement on retaliatory measures in connection with hostile actions by the United States
      738-16-04-2021


      The latest attack on our country undertaken by the Biden Administration, of course, cannot remain unanswered. Washington, it seems, does not want to put up with the fact that in the new geopolitical realities there is no place for unilateral dictatorship, and the bankrupt scenarios of "containment of Moscow", on which the United States continues to shortsightedly stake, are fraught only with further degradation of Russian-American relations.

      Against this background, calls from across the ocean sound hypocritical to refrain from escalation, and in fact to agree that they are trying to talk to us from a position of strength. They have repeatedly warned and proved in practice that sanctions and other pressures are not only futile, but will also result in disastrous consequences for those who decide on such provocations.

      In response to the anti-Russian sanctions, the following countermeasures will be introduced in the near future.

      On the basis of reciprocity, the expulsion of employees of US diplomatic missions will follow in an amount commensurate with the action carried out by the US authorities against Russian diplomats.
      By the way, we noticed how quickly the US Administration “sang along” in Warsaw, demanding the departure of three Russian diplomats from Poland. In turn, five Polish diplomats will be expelled from Russia.

      The practice of using the US Embassy's short-term assignments through the State Department to ensure the functioning of diplomatic missions is limited. The issuance of appropriate visas to them will be reduced to a minimum: up to 10 people. per year on the basis of reciprocity.
      In strict accordance with the Vienna Conventions on Diplomatic Relations and Russian legislation, including the Labor Code, measures will be taken to completely end the practice of hiring by US diplomatic missions administrative and technical workers from among citizens of the Russian Federation and third countries.
      In connection with the systematic violations by the US diplomatic missions of the rules for traveling through the territory of the Russian Federation, the 1992 bilateral Memorandum of Understanding regarding the "open land" is terminated.
      It means to end the activities in the Russian Federation of American foundations and NGOs controlled by the State Department and other American government agencies. This work, which has been carried out for a long time and systematically, will be brought to an end, especially against the background of the fact that the United States does not intend to reduce the scope of its subversive efforts, carried out systematically and relying on an extensive legislative base.
      It is obvious that the current extremely tense situation implies an objective need for the ambassadors of both our countries to be in their capitals to analyze the situation and hold consultations.
      These steps are just a part of the possibilities at our disposal. The threats to introduce new punishments in the statements of the American side, unfortunately, show that Washington does not want to hear us and does not appreciate the restraint that we have shown, despite the high degree of tension that has been purposefully whipped up since the presidency of Barack Obama.

      Recall that after the large-scale expulsion of Russian diplomats in December 2016 and the seizure of Russian diplomatic property in the United States, we did not take any retaliatory steps for seven months. Our reaction followed only when, in August 2017, Russia was declared an enemy of America at the legislative level.

      In general, in comparison with Russian diplomatic missions in the United States, the American Embassy in Moscow operates in more comfortable conditions, having a numerical advantage and actively using the labor in place of the received Russian citizens. This is a form of disparity that allows the "titular" diplomats to free up time for more focused efforts on one of the main doctrinal directions of Washington's foreign policy - interference in our internal affairs.

      By the way, the names of eight current and former American high-ranking officials and figures involved in the development and implementation of the anti-Russian course will soon be published on the official portal of the Russian Foreign Ministry. They are barred from entering the Russian Federation on an indefinite basis. This is a mirrored response to sanctions against Russian officials that the US blacklisted last month.

      Now is the time for the United States to show prudence by abandoning the confrontational course. Otherwise, a set of such painful decisions for the American side will be implemented, such as, for example, an order to reduce US diplomatic missions to 300 people. number of personnel in Russia. This will establish a real parity in bilateral missions abroad, since so far, when determining the American quota of 455 employees, we count 155 people sent to our Permanent Mission to the UN in New York. But this is not a two-way mission at all.

      There are other options as well. We, of course, understand the limitations of our ability to mirror the "disadvantage" of Americans economically. But there is a certain resource in this regard, and it will also be used if Washington chooses to move along the sanctions spiral.

      All this is not our choice. We would like to avoid further escalation with the United States. We are ready for a calm and professional dialogue with the American side in the interests of finding ways to normalize bilateral ties. However, the reality is that from Washington we hear one thing, but in practice we see something completely different. There should be no doubt - not a single wave of sanctions will go unpunished.

      Of course, we heard President Biden's statements about his interest in "stable, constructive and predictable" relations with Russia, including the initiative to hold a Russian-American summit. When this proposal was voiced, it was perceived positively and is now being studied in the context of a real-life situation.

    Steps are absolutely correct - diplomatic relations are justified when they contribute to the development and benefit of the country. At the moment, dip. relations with the United States are not conducive to anything - the state is not friendly to us, which has long crawled headlong into our near zone. Another thing is that in this area a tough and long-term consistency is needed, and not some kind of "symmetry" - first of all, from the sanctions and actions of the United States, we must draw long-term conclusions and calmly tread the paths, taking into account the reality and inviolability of these sanctions, and not endless waiting " gradual rollback ". There will be no good relations with the United States, this must be taken as an axiom.

    Now that's YES, that's the answer!
    They sent diplomats out. To whom did it become worse? Now you will wait a year for visas instead of three months. (conditionally). And besides the actual visas in USA, there are also a bunch of transit ones. To the same Mexico as an example. There are no “transit” zones for users at airports. And to fly through the states you need a visa. This is the answer. But about this:
    In addition, the United States prohibits American companies from directly purchasing Russian debt securities issued by the Central Bank of Russia, the National Wealth Fund (NWF) and the Treasury Department.

    no one even hinted. What would not be a mirror answer? To prohibit the purchase of US government bonds for our Central Bank? And I will answer, WEAK. Fart into a puddle, expelling diplomats, please. But there will be no real answers.

    from the network: the meaning of Biden's call and the recall of destroyers from the march to the Black Sea is to divert not only attention, but also to win positionally, while during the period of "de-escalation" and preparation of a reconciliatory meeting, no one in the Kremlin wants to be an aggressor and take active actions that they could to rip it off. In fact, a proposal from across the ocean is a trap, or, metaphorically speaking, a "carrot in front of the nose." After months of preparation, we will see useless negotiations that will bring nothing in terms of resolving the US-Russian conflicts, but under its cover there will be bases and a "counterbalance" to possible aid from the Russian Federation to Donbass. Ready-to-use "casus belli", like Georgian in 2008.

    The plan has already begun to be implemented: heavy US transporters land regularly at the Kiev airport, as well as in Lvov and other cities in Ukraine. We can only hope that Moscow has figured out the rather uncomplicated plan of the "Western partners" and will not allow the enemy's extremely dangerous idea under its very nose to come true.

    I especially liked about the ban on the work of any dubious funds ..- now all sorts of Navalny- Sorosyats will be on starvation rations :) You also need to block all dubious sites and media - like in China, only Facebook for Zakharova should be left and YouTube for bloggers and reviewers wassat

    A recommendation is not an order, much less an announcement of "persona non grata". What if Sullivan refuses to fly from Moscow to the United States?
