Russia's Diplomatic Response to President Biden's Sanctions - US Ambassador Advised to Leave Moscow

Copied from tweets by Veritas Semper Vincit @semper_vincit
.
1. Ambassador John Sullivan was advised to leave Moscow
.
2. Ten US diplomats will be expelled from Russia
.
3. Moscow is introducing a ban on hiring staff from the Russian Federation and third countries for the US for the US embassy and other embassies
.
(This is gonna be painful as Americans do not speak Russian or other languages; hey, they don't even speak English)
.
4. ANY remaining US NGOs and foundations associated with the embassy and still operating will be  closed.
.
(Sergei Lavrov: These organizations "directly interfering in Russia's domestic political life".)
.
5. Americans coming to Russia for "short-term business trips, having diplomatic immunity when they are not US embassy's employees is over: limited to 9 / year, on a reciprocal basis.
.
(This will deeply cut into CIA "business trips")
.
6. The Russian Federation is unilaterally suspending the 1992 Memorandum of Understanding "on an Open Country": embassy staff has to inform inform the host country of a journey of more than 25 miles (40 kilometers) from the city of residence.
.
(Sergei Lavrov says that the Americans often ignore this treaty, as usual. Americans will need granted permission from now on. Lavrov said that a US military attaché recently traveled to Central Russia without even mentioning this to Russian authorities.)
.
After these retaliations done by the Russians, we can conclude that the US embassy - which is in fact Pentagon/ C!A headquarters in Moscow - and the NGOs - which are the civilian branches of Pentagon / C!A  and which were easily able to create color revolutions - have been dismantled by the Russians.
.
About time.
