Putin has ordered out 755 US diplomats from Russia as JUSTICE for new US sanctions trying to cripple the Russian economy. The current sanctions imposed by America were in response of alleged Russian meddling in the us elections and Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014.
Russia has also seized holiday homes and a warehouse belonging to the us diplomats. The diplomats must leave Russia by 1st September and will bring us officials working in Russia to 455 the same number of Russian diplomats currently working in Washington.
Putin has warned that more action maybe taken against America if things do not change, however currently Putin is against such further action saying “I am against it as of today.”.
In December president Obama expelled 35 Russian diplomats and seized 2 Russian compounds in America after Hillary Clintons email server was hacked and the Russians were blamed (no evidence was ever found to support this).
Putin has offered an olive branch to America by suggesting Russia and the US work together to create a de-escalation zone in southern Syria to help stop fighting in the country and get rid of Islamic extremists something Donald Trump and Putin both want.
