The luxurious, 45-acre compound in Maryland being shut down for alleged Russian espionage

On Thursday afternoon, the Obama administration announced its long-awaited retaliation for what has been characterized as Russian interference in November's presidential election.

Among the wide-ranging measures, the White House announced that the State Department would be closing two Russian-owned compounds — one in Maryland and one in New York — that it says were used by Russian personnel for intelligence-related purposes. It is also declaring 35 Russians “persona non grata” for their alleged role in intelligence operations.

How hidden were these alleged spy compounds? At least in the case of Maryland, the answer is simple: not very.

The compound in Maryland sits on around 45 acres of land at Pioneer Point, a peninsula where the Corsica and Chester rivers merge — around a 90-minute drive from downtown Washington, by the Eastern Shore town of Centreville in Queen Anne's County.

3. These Russian diplomats have 72 hours to leave and they're banned from USA.

Interesting article from Chicago Tribune that talks about the meaning of being declared "persona non grata" and the history of its use in America.

I wonder how many people being banned are in the inner circle of Unpotus?
