Ten American diplomats from the US Embassy in Moscow declared persona non grata

40

The Russian Foreign Ministry declared ten employees of the American embassy in Moscow persona non grata, they were ordered to leave the territory of Russia. This measure is a response to the imposed US sanctions.


Today, April 21, the Deputy US Ambassador to Russia, Bart Gorman, was summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry to receive a note on the appearance of ten employees of the US Embassy in Moscow persona non grata. True, they must leave the territory of Russia within a month, until May 21, 2021, and not like the Czechs - within 24 hours.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said that the expulsion of American diplomats is a "mirror" response to the expulsion of ten Russian diplomats from the Russian embassy in Washington and the consulate general in New York.

It is emphasized that in the near future Moscow will begin to introduce other items of retaliatory measures to US sanctions. Earlier, a list of eight members of the Joe Biden administration who were banned from entering Russia was published. In addition, US Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan was "recommended" to travel to Washington for "consultations." The ambassador balked, but later agreed to go to the United States. Several American funds that "interfere in Russian politics" will also be closed.

Recall that US President Joe Biden signed a decree on the introduction of sanctions against Russia. As part of the sanctions imposed, 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.

      Yes, it's a pity to spit on them, but you waste water on them. Judging by the weather, it will wash away with rain. And they said on TV that they should fly out by the end of the day. Or was I wrong?

      I don’t understand, do they have any special benefits? Not fair, however.

        Both of you are wrong. The states gave our 10 diplomats a month to leave.
        And ours to them (10) in response - also a month. Mirror.
        Twenty-four hours were given to the stupefied Czechs. The Czechs gave ours 24 hours.
        But the impudence of the Czechs, both in the number of our diplomats (18), and in relation to the expulsion (complete nonsense) is such that the answer to them was not mirrored.
        The Chekhovs were exiled by 2 more, the term for collecting was reduced by 2 times.
        Both the United States and the Czechs were banned from hiring Russians.
        Formally, due to the fact that ours do not hire foreigners. They do everything themselves.

            And I like what to announce - announced, but we introduce it in parts.
            Let them rush about and think - and what to do so that not all are entered?

              It is unlikely. They deliberately aggravate and worsen relations and were probably ready for retaliatory steps. They probably for their sake, reciprocal steps, and this all started that.

        It would be nice to increase pressure on foreign agents in Russia ... to start pressing various pro-American informal offices in our country such as Dozhd, Echo of Moscow, etc.

          Echo of Moscow informal office?
          Yes, okay. Funded by a government agency. And until now it was absolutely untouchable. And it will be in the future.
          But who invented, covers up, makes it possible at public expense to openly engage in subversive work?

      - Several American funds, "interfering in Russian politics", will also be closed.
      Close to the maximum.
      And yet, the Yankes are expelling, among other things, the staff of the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation at the UN headquarters in New York. And this is already chaos - they are not involved in relations between the two countries and are located in the United States only because it is there that the UN headquarters is located.

      Armenia hosts one of the largest US embassies (the second largest in the world) with a population of 2500 diplomats, i.e., on average, 1 diplomat for every 1200 citizens living in Armenia. So they are like fleas in Armenia, and they can be sent not by a couple of diplomats, but by a couple of charter flights. In Belarus with these bovine representatives sort of deficit (six heads + a temporary attorney), and the US Ambassador to Belarus Julie Fischer herself is accredited in Vilnius, where she hangs out with the non-president Juanita Tikhanovskaya.

    This is how they treat incomprehensible ambassadors. A note was handed to the deputy ambassador. To those concerned about the future! Peskov spoke well about the red lines about the security of external national interests and did not forget about the people of Donbas. Briefly, diplomatically and succinctly.

        So what? I just suggested that we start cleaning up the Russian economy from excess greenery. Let China decide for itself. At the same time, we would have to subject the "banking and economic sector" to a demonstrative decimation with the obligatory shooting of heads and their deputies ... That would be good ...

            Do not worry. There will be no "diplomats" - it will be abandoned. I have not seen this mansion, but I think that when the composition of the Amerzian embassy is reduced to 3-5 digs, the mansion will lose its gloss in a stroke, especially since the ban on hiring citizens of Russia and third countries should not be canceled laughing

    This is not a perk. Just usually 48-72 hours are given. But then the "owner" was given a month, and the "mongrels" were given 24-48 hours, respectively.
