23. Russia to expel 10 US diplomats in retaliation against sanctions

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Friday said that Moscow will request for 10 U.S. diplomats to leave the country in response to a slew of sanctions the Biden administration announced against the country.

According to Lavrov, Russia is also set to sanction eight U.S. officials and prevent U.S. non-government organizations from interfering in the country's politics, The Associated Press reported.

He also stated that while Russia could move to take "painful measures" against American businesses in the country, it is not currently acting on that.

The move comes after President Biden signed an executive order blocking American financial institutions from lending funds to or purchasing bonds from Russia's Central Bank, National Wealth Fund or Ministry of Finance after June 14 of this year.
