Russian senator says Moscow will expel dozens of U.S. diplomats

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Moscow will expel at least 60 staff from U.S. diplomatic missions in Russia in response to Washington’s decision to expel Russian diplomats, RIA news agency quoted a member of the upper house of the Russian parliament as saying.

The agency did not say on what the parliamentarian, Vladimir Dzhabarov, deputy chairman of the international affairs committee in the upper house, based his assertion. Government officials have yet to comment.
