Nerve-agent attack: 18 nations expel 100 Russian diplomats


Nerve-agent attack: 18 nations expel 100 Russian diplomats

US President Donald Trump ordered 60 Russian diplomats his country considers spies to leave the country in response to the nerve-agent poisoning of a former Russian spy in the United Kingdom and closed Russia's consulate in Seattle. Further, fourteen European Union countries announced they were expelling 30 Russian diplomats in a coordinated international response, which is the biggest Western expulsion of Russian diplomats since the height of the Cold War.

Australia also announced that it would expel two Russian diplomats over the UK spy attack.
