35 Russian Diplomats are kicked out of US by Barack Obama

The sheepish Look of Putin in the representation picture gives all the answers.

President Barack Obama sanctioned Russian intelligence services and their top officials and kicked out 35 Russian officials and shuttered two Russian-owned compounds in the U.S.

The Americans should be alarmed by such activities by the foreign forces and as a part from US side, there will be consequences to such illegal activities.

Obama ordered sanctions against two Russian intelligence services, the GRU and the FSB, plus companies the U.S. says support the GRU.

The cyber-security firm hired by the Democratic National Committee to investigate theft of its emails determined earlier this year the hacking came from the Fancy Bear group, believed to be affiliated with the GRU, Russia’s military intelligence agency.

Obama said the hacking “could only have been directed by the highest levels of the Russian government,” a contention the U.S. has used to suggest Russian President Vladimir Putin was personally involved.

The 35 Russian diplomats being kicked out are intelligence operatives, Obama said.

"They were acting in a manner inconsistent with their diplomatic status. Those individuals and their families were given 72 hours to leave the United States."

US Intelligence has found out that Russian Diplomats have been peaking themselves in the internal affairs of the Country.

What Problems are the Russian Officials Facing in US?

The two compounds being closed down are recreational facilities owned by Russia’s government, one in Maryland and one in New York, the U.S. said.

The White House said Russia had been notified that Russia would be denied access to the sites starting noon on Friday.

Russian officials have denied the Obama administration’s accusation that the Russian government was involved at the highest levels in trying to influence the U.S. presidential election

Kicking out 35 Russian Diplomats from US!! 35 Diplomats are a huge number.

What will be Trump’s reaction when he comes to office?

The move puts the president-elect in the position of having to decide whether to roll back the measures once in office.

Obama had all but accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of personally ordering an audacious cyberhack that many Democrats believe damaged Hillary Clinton’s chances in November’s closely fought election with Republican foe Trump.

The measures are certain to send already high tensions with Moscow soaring just three weeks before Trump succeeds Obama.

Here is the tweet from the Russian Embassy in UK, on the declaration of Persona Non Grata from the US - Barack Obama Government.
