Twelve members of Russia’s diplomatic mission to the UN have been ordered to leave the United States by the end of March, Russia’s ambassador to the world body said Monday.

Vassily Nebenzia told reporters at a press conference at the UN headquarters in New York that he had just learned of the expulsion.

AFP was not immediately able to confirm the order independently and a spokesperson for the US State Department said he had no comment.
