Russia on Wednesday said it was expelling US diplomats in retaliation for Washington’s move earlier this month to remove 12 of Moscow’s representatives to the UN based in the US.

“On March 23, a note with the list of the American diplomats declared ‘persona non grata’ was handed to the head of the American diplomatic mission who was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs,” the ministry said in a statement.
