A light flickers under the flag outside the US Embassy in Moscow on Thursday after the news Russia will kick out 60 American diplomats and close the US Consulate in St. Petersburg. The tit-for-tat measures came in response to Monday's coordinated expulsion of more than 100 Russian diplomats from the United States and a number of other countries. The expulsions have taken place following the... Еще hospitalisation of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, after they were allegedly exposed to the nerve agent Novichok in Salisbury earlier in the month. The UK government has blamed Moscow for the incident. The latest diplomatic spat came as it was revealed Yulia Skripal appears to making a recovery. Reports in the UK say she is now conscious and communicating.
