Russian Federation orders U.S. to remove 755 embassy, consulate employees

"I decided it's time for us to show we do not intend to leave USA actions unanswered", Putin said on Russian state television Sunday. "We will ... retaliate", he said.

"We waited for a rather long time, thinking that things might improve, nourished the hope that the situation would change somehow", Putin said in an interview with state television broadcast Sunday. "But it appears that even if it changes someday it will not change soon", Putin said.

Moscow, July 31 (IBNS): in a major move, Russian President Vladimir Putin has directed that staff at United States diplomatic missions in Russia will be reduced, media reports said.

Earlier this week, the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate overwhelmingly approved the bill that will slap tougher sanctions on Russia, Iran and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

Flipkart had initially offered around $750 million for the deal, which was rejected by the Snapdeal's board. Snapdeal had 9,000 employees in July last year- the number was brought down from 9,000 to 1,200.

If these threats were meant to dissuade President Trump from signing the new sanctions into law, Trump never really had that option to begin with.

Putin delayed retaliating to sanctions imposed at the end of Barack Obama's presidency in 2016, when the U.S. expelled 35 Russian diplomats from the country and seized two compounds used by Russian missions.

"If the USA side decides to move further towards.deterioration, we will answer", he said. "We will retaliate. But my whole point is, don't do this, it is to the detriment of the interests of the USA". But at some point, we will have to respond. On Friday, after a week of mixed signals as to whether or not Trump would veto the bill, the White House announced the president would indeed sign the legislation.

This situation is quite interesting especially in the wake of the Trump-Russia saga.

Congressional, FBI and Department of Justice investigators are all examining whether Trump or members of his campaign team colluded with Russian agents to maximize the alleged operation's impact.

The bill underwent revisions to address concerns voiced by American oil and natural gas companies that sanctions specific to Russia's energy sector could backfire on them to Moscow's benefit.
