As the Obama administration announced the expulsion of 35 Russians diplomats from the US, based on no evidence of ”election hacking” whatsoever – President Putin decided against reciprocal measures.
Foregoing the standard diplomatic principles of mirrored actions, and against the Ministry of Foreign Affairs recommendations to expel US diplomats from Russia, he cited major inconveniences to their established lives and those of their children on New Year’s Eve.
While CNN was busy making up stories that the Russian-American School in Moscow was closed in response to this – no such thing occurred, and US diplomat’s children were invited to attend the Kremlin New Year’s Eve children’s party.
