president spoke with many foreign leaders our european allies and others and encouraged them to join the united states in this. in this announcement as you've just heard the u.s. was the driving force behind these expulsions with trump encouraging others to take similar measures now the u.s. will be expelling the most number of russian diplomats out of all the countries that have decided to do so the white house will be calling sixty diplomats twelve boys or u.n. staff members and they'll have approximately seven days to leave a u.n. representative was grilled about this whether this move will violate an agreement that was made between the u.s. and the u.n. in the forty's let's take a quick look does the u.n. believe that this in any way violates the u.s. agreement with the u.n. of nine hundred forty seven the host country agreement given the sensitivity of the matter which is ongoing we will not comment further at this stage u.s. mission says that and i quote our actions are consistently the united nations

6:09 pm
open to working with the russians on areas of mutual concern counterterrorism for example and others now with this latest decision in relations between the two countries are add an all time low so we'll just have to wait and see what happens. well russia has reacted angrily to the expulsions and says the moves won't remain unanswered for long as medina cochon of a reports next from moscow. well we've heard from the russian foreign ministry spokesperson marty is a kind of a who said that reciprocal measures will be taking against each country that decided to expel russian diplomats and overall we're talking about over a dozen countries that supported this move now she also added that adds a very measured that was taking will be mad mero measure in response including the shutdown of the russian consulate and the u.s. now shortly after at this news that a number of countries are expelling russian diplomats broke the russian foreign ministry released a statement and in this statement. expressed protest these expulsions
6:10 pm
calling them an unfriendly stab that will not find any answers and these scripts case and the statement also goes on to say that the exposure and are being seen as a provocation adding that such a hostile move on part of this group of countries will not be allowed. and indeed with her from a number of high level officials in the russian diplomatic society now i don't know who is the russian ambassador to the u.s. has protested against what he called a wrongful decision by the u.s. to expel russian diplomats to fit in for months on learning about the expulsions are expressed a strong position to the move but i pointed out today there's not been a single shred of evidence of russia's involvement in this tragedy the most productive way to address this case would be a calm and professional investigation by the world that goes it is not only the
6:11 pm
russian ambassador to the u.s. has expressed his outrage to the move a number of has of other russian diplomatic missions in different countries lashed out at the use of recent expulsions. we think this is an unreasonable decision and that undermines russian german relation of weeks. and a regrettable that they won't give us any evidence and we just hear that it's highly likely that russia is responsible for this tragic incident we believe the you shouldn't fall for this dirty british provocation all the talk about to use solidarity is laughable as there can only be solidarity in the fight against real threats but not in support of insinuations and over all we've heard from different high level officials here in russia expressing disappointment and even at times this believed to this recent move by the u.s. a number of other european countries to expel russian diplomats which have experience in all this from
6:12 pm
a british ambassador peter foldes with us live there peter first off are you personally surprised this is happening to such a big extent so soon again no concrete proof put forward yet all this has happened in retaliation if you like. the scale of it is surprising in deed but it's just proof the hysteria is contagious what we've witnessed in britain in the last two weeks has been a classic case of the hysteria whipped up by the government. and by the mostly right wing press i think what with seeing is a reaction of the elite. to a loss of power let me explain. the elite lost in in recent years in several contests the referendum
6:13 pm
notably. the elite feel very much on the defensive against the fourth so-called populism that is democratic movement which the elite don't like it's noticeable for example that nigel faraj is somewhat sympathetic to russia it's noticeable that donald trump. notwithstanding these latest event. congratulated president putin recently and so the as i theoretically elite. towns are attacking or malays and the problem is that it's seen as one of the lead driving forces as well as tories of may of all a driving forces for of europe's concern and pushing this forward was indeed donald trump it seems that the states were behind pushing europe to come out as strong as they have here i wonder why that is the same time trump still says he wants to work
6:14 pm
with russia or eccentric cetera. i think the united states ministration is totally shit so phrenic in the matter over russia it's quite clear that trump's gut reaction is to show some understanding towards russia and the real wish to cooperate hence the notorious phone call where he apparently ignored the written instructions from the deep state they quit the deep state is so deeply involved here. trungpa ignored that but there's a limit to what he can do and he has been so on core caught up in this wave of area looking at the closure of the consulate in seattle was it spirit of the white as the reason it gave what you think about it was that the the russian consulate there was simply closed it was too close to
6:15 pm
a submarine base there and the aircraft engine manufacturer of boeing what was that about. well it does make one worry if american security is imperiled by the president there were a few russian diplomats on the doorstep i mean frankly the this is not this is not. this is cartoon this is cartoonish trails of russia as a pantomime villain and personally as a pantomime villain this is not serious well we're still waiting to hear what the repercussions will be as far as moscow is concerned it sounds like they'll be if not equally as severe more so we don't know yet but as far as we can garner at the moment is it over as.
