Russia expels hundreds of US diplomats in tit-for-tat move

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday said the United States must cut two thirds of diplomatic positions in Russia in response to new US sanctions against Russia.

In an interview with Rossia-24 television, Mr. Putin said 755 of approximately 1,000 people working at the US embassy and consulates must end their activities in Russia. Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry demanded the US cut its diplomatic presence in Russia by September 1 to 455 people � the same number Russia has in the US.
