96 Russians to leave US due to sanctions

A total of 96 Russian diplomats and their family members will have to leave the US, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Friday.

Ms. Zakharovasaid the expulsion of the Russia diplomats is a retaliatory act for policy failure of President Barack Obama. U.S. President-elect Donald Trump on Friday praised Russian President Vladimir Putin for refraining from retaliation in a dispute over Moscow's alleged interference into the US Presidential election. Putin earlier on Friday said he would not hit back for the U.S. expulsion of 35 suspected Russian spies.
