European Countries Expel 45 Russian Diplomats

Russia's Putin could use AI to attack exiles

Australia and Ireland on Tuesday joined more than 20 other nations in expelling Russian diplomats in response to the nerve agent attack on a former Russian military intelligence officer and his daughter in Britain.

On Tuesday Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said his country was expelling two Russian diplomats whom he described as undeclared intelligence officers. Nor did Trump raise the accusations of poisoning of the ex-spy in a phone call with Putin last week.

Like many other investors who have grown used to bouts of political risk in Russian Federation since the annexation of Crimea in 2014, Strigo is betting the tensions won't be sufficient to curb the appeal of debt offering some of the highest real yields in emerging markets. The Polish foreign minister was expected to make an announcement later this afternoon.

May said the coordinated measures sent the "strongest signal to Russian Federation that it can not continue to flout global law".

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. Russia's Embassy in Washington responded to the Seattle consulate closure by asking its Twitter followers to "vote" which U.S. Consulate should be shuttered in turn: St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg or Vladivostok.

"Mr. Skripal and his daughter were poisoned with a military-grade nerve agent of a type developed by Russian Federation", specifically from the Novichok group, May said following the attack.

The Foreign Ministry said "powerful forces" in the United States and Britain were behind the attack, RIA Novosti agency reported. "It goes without saying that this unfriendly move by this group of countries will not go unnoticed".

"There is no actual deterrence and squeeze", said James Nixey, head of the Russian Federation program at think tank Chatham House.

Another deputy governor, Vladimir Chernov, addressed the rally in the center of Kemerovo and rejected the unconfirmed reports of hundreds of deaths as rumors and said he was ready to resign if people want him to. "This kind of multilateral expulsion is unprecedented".

In turn, Germany, Canada, Poland and France have chose to expel four diplomats each, Lithuania and the Czech Republic - three each, Australia, Albania, Denmark, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands - two each, Hungary, Latvia, Macedonia, Norway, Romania, Finland, Croatia, Sweden and Estonia - one each, while Ukraine made a decision to send away 13 Russian diplomats. Russian ambassador to the U.S. Anatoly Antonov slammed the decision as the nail in the coffin of bilateral relations.

Skripal was granted refuge in the United Kingdom following a 2010 spy exchange between the US and Russian Federation.

USA lawmakers largely welcomed Trump's move on Monday.

Strigo says he's watching the situation closely but is much more focused on macroeconomic indicators, such as the Russian central bank's gradual approach to monetary easing and the rising price of oil.
