Russia has announced that it will expel a number of US diplomats in retaliation for the US expulsion of 12 Russian diplomats from Washington.
Washington announced last month that it was expelling Russian diplomats from the country’s UN mission in New York due to national security concerns, and later announced that it would remove another Russian from the UN who it claimed was acting as a spy.
On the same day, the Russian Foreign Ministry summoned US Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan to protest President Joe Biden’s designation of Russian President Vladimir Putin as a “war criminal.”
According to a State Department spokesperson, the US “received a list of diplomats declared ‘persona non grata’ from the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on March 23.”

Persona non grata is a term in diplomatic cables which means a person is no longer welcome or accepted in a country or state.
As at press time, is not clear how many US diplomats will be affected by the order, and when they will be expelled from Russia.
