Russian Diplomats are expelled from governments worldwide after the recent suspected poisoning.
On March 4th, the former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, were believed to be poisoned by a military-grade nerve agent called novichok in their home. On their front door.
Novichok is a series of nerve agents the Soviet Union and Russia developed, of which Russian scientists claim it to be the deadliest nerve agents ever made. So, it is deadly.
Furthermore, traces of the nerve agent have been found at other sites near the home, with more than 100 people being affected by the attack.
As soon as the two victims were hospitalized, there was automatic accusation on Russian spies all over the world. It was a diplomatic victory for the UK, which blamed the poisoning on Russia. Recently, there has been a surge in Russian diplomats’ expulsion in various governments worldwide, in more than 20 countries. Countries include: Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Albania, Australia, Canada, Macedonia, Moldova, Norway, Ukraine, and of course the U.S.
Trump himself ordered 60 Russian diplomats the US considers spies to leave the country and closed Russia’s consulate in Seattle. It is the largest such expulsion in U.S history of any governmental employees, with the second being when Ronald Reagan sent home 80 Soviet Union embassy staff and UN personnel, but in two separate orders.
However, Russia recently suggested that it happened at the hands of UK intelligence officers. They have ordered over 20 British diplomats out of Russia, because of “unsubstantiated accusations,” and suspect of them.
It is more likely that the attack was the fault of Russian spies, considering the nerve agent was made in Russian scientists and is found in Russia.
So what’s the truth?
