According to Russian Ambassador Anatoly Antonov, 27 Russian diplomats and their families will depart the United States by the end of January, and an additional 27 will depart on the 30th of June.

Russian diplomats and their families have been barred from the United States for more than a year now, following the deterioration of ties between the two countries following Washington’s accusations of Moscow’s interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The U.S. State Department has warned that the Moscow embassy may be forced to close because of a dispute over visas.

According to Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, 55 Russian diplomats and employees are expected to leave the United States “in the coming months.” she stated.

U.S. diplomatic missions to Russia now employ around 120 people, down from 1,200 in 2017, after several rounds of tit-for-tat diplomatic expulsions. Meanwhile, Russia has around 230 people in the U.S.
