Flight Of Russian Diplomats Expelled From US Is Now On Its Way To Moscow
To Russia with hate.
While Putin took the “high road” and refused to retaliate tit-for-tat to last week’s decision by the Obama administration to impose sanctions on the Kremlin, for dozens of Russian diplomats stationed in the US the first day of the new year meant taking what is likely a last, one way flight out of the US in direction Moscow, simply because it was Russia’s duty to be the scapegoat for Hillary Clinton’s loss in the presidential elections after Vladimir Putin himself, according to the narrative, “hacked the US elections.”
“The plane took off, everyone has left,” RIA quoted the embassy’s press service as saying.
