Putin Expels 755 Diplomats In Response To Tougher Sanctions Placed On Moscow By The White House

Russian president Vladimir Putin declared that by Sept. 1, 755 American diplomats will have to be removed from Russia.

This would bring the number of diplomats to 455, the same number of Russian diplomats and technical staff allowed to remain in the U.S. after sanction applied by President Obama following the 2016 election.

According to multiple reports, Russia will also seize two U.S. diplomatic buildings.
