Russian diplomats’ expulsion from the USA and other states is a reaction on a “thoughtless nerve agent attack on a British citizen and his daughter on the territory of Britain” as to Jon Huntsman, U.S. Ambassador to Russia, said in the interview for Kommersant.

He stressed that Great Britain is U.S. close ally. That is why Washington could not leave such actions beyond attention.

“We convey a message – if you treat our friends and allies like that, the response reaction is inevitable,” the Ambassador stated.

Earlier, the USA, Canada and 15 EU member states informed about their decision to expel Russian diplomats. Ukraine joined the sanctions and expelled 13 Russian diplomats from the country.
