Russia on Wednesday said it was expelling the United States diplomats in retaliation for Washington’s move to remove 12 of Moscow’s representatives to the United Nations based in New York.

The decision was taken in response to the expulsion by Washington of Russian diplomats at the UN in New York.

“The US side has been given firm notice that any hostile action by the United States against Russia will be met with a resolute and appropriate response,” the statement added.

The United States expelled 12 members of the Russian diplomatic mission to the UN in early March amid an open crisis with Russia over Ukraine on charges of “espionage”.
