Russia responds to US sanctions by kicking out 10 American diplomats, and putting sanctions on 8 US officials and banning NGOs that "interfere in Russia's internal affairs."

According to AP, The US government on Thursday expelled 10 Russian diplomats, targeted dozens of companies and people, and imposed new sanctions on Russia’s ability to borrow money. Pundits predicted Moscow would almost certainly respond in kind to the expulsions but would refrain from any other significant moves to avoid a further escalation.
