U.S. leader Donald Trump appreciated sending the American diplomats out of Russia; by doing so, he said, his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin saved Washington a lot of money.

As is known, last month, the Kremlin demanded that the U.S. withdraws 755 diplomatic workers from Russia; the Russian government also arrested certain diplomatic property of the U.S. in Moscow. Such decision was made after Washington once again toughened the anti-Russian sanctions.
