Russia Expels 2 US Diplomats for 'Illegal Activity'

  • Russia has expelled two U.S. Embassy employees, accusing them of working with a Russian national previously accused of spying, leading to escalating tensions between the two countries.
  • The two expelled diplomats, Jeff Sillin and David Bernstein, have been accused of conducting illegal activities by liaising with the Russian citizen, Robert Shonov, who had worked as a local employee at the U.S. Consulate in Vladivostok for over 25 years. The Russian Federal Security Service arrested Shonov and accused him of passing information to the United States about Russia's war in Ukraine. The U.S. State Department dismissed the allegations and strongly protested the harassments by the Russian security service.
  • The expulsion of the diplomats by Russia was condemned by the U.S. State Department as unprovoked and without merit. The incident highlights Russia's repressive laws and its ongoing efforts to intimidate U.S. Employees and its own citizens. The State Department warned that appropriate responses would be taken in response to Russia's actions.
