Ireland to expel Russian diplomat over United Kingdom nerve agent attack

Russian Mall Fire Kills at Least 64

Washington is expelling 60 Russian diplomats and shuttering the consulate in Seattle. Naval Base Kitsap, the home port of U.S. Navy nuclear submarines in Washington state.

USA officials said the scale of the expulsions was based not only on the expansion of Russian espionage in the United States, but also on its increasing focus on critical infrastructure targets such as electrical grids, financial networks, transportation and healthcare. It is said to be the largest, global one-time expulsion of a country's intelligence officials ever. The Russian embassy in Washington asked its Twitter followers to vote on which U.S. consulate should be closed, listing those in Vladivostok, St Petersburg and Yekaterinburg as options. "We will be guided by the principle of reciprocity as before", Peskov said. "They were calling from there, asking for help: 'We're locked in, we're suffocating.' No one helped because when the blaze broke out, everyone ran away". All three Baltic states said they would make diplomats leave. British Prime Minister Theresa May called it "the largest collective expulsion of Russian intelligence officers in history". "The expulsion of Russian diplomats alone, however, is unlikely to deter Russia from its aggressive behavior".

As well as the attack on Sergei and Yulia Skripal, who are still fighting for their lives having been found unconscious on a bench in Salisbury on 4 March, Turnbull cited interference in elections and threats to "the sovereignty of our partners".

Trump has yet to speak publicly about the expulsion. John McCain, R-Ariz., called it "a welcome step forward in holding Putin accountable".

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told the RIA Novosti news agency on Tuesday that Russia was disappointed by the US announcement that it would expel 60 Russian diplomats and shut down a Russian consulate in Seattle.

Thousands of angry and distraught Russians rallied Tuesday in a Siberian city to demand a full probe into a shopping mall fire that killed at least 64 people, many of them children.

At least 116 alleged agents working under diplomatic cover were ordered out by 22 governments, dwarfing similar measures in even the most notorious Cold War spying disputes, and marking a British diplomatic victory.

"US administration ordered the closure of the Russian Consulate in Seattle @GK_Seattle". Iceland said Monday that it would send no government officials to Russian Federation to accompany its team to the football World Cup this summer.

And the United States warned of an "unacceptably high" number of Russian spies in the US, describing them as a national security threat. Chapman was part of what the Justice Department called the Illegals Program, which became the inspiration for the popular TV series "The Americans".

"A consulate is a clandestine signals-collection site. and is a base of operations", said the official, noting Russian collection abilities have been dealt other recent setbacks with the closure a year ago of the Russian consulate in San Francisco and Russia's traditional "vacation" compounds in Maryland and New York State due to alleged espionage activities.
