Russia's newly appointed Permanent Representative to the UN Vasili Nebenzia stated that «ironically» the EU, which implemented «illegal» sanctions against Moscow, could now «be a victim of those sanctions,» while speaking to the press following his meeting with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres in New York, Friday.
Nebenzia noted that «ironically, the European Union, which implemented... Еще illegal sanctions against us [Russia] along with the US, now could be a victim of those sanctions as a result of the resolution which was adopted [recently] by [the US] Congress» before adding that «the situation can be described as — we told you so.»
Russian authorities have stated that the US must cut the number of diplomatic staff in the country to 455 personnel by September 1, and halt their usage of summer houses in Serebryany Bor and embassy storage facilities on Dorozhnaya Street in Moscow by August 1.
Moscow's decision comes after Congress passed a bill that would impose new economic sanctions against Russia, targeting mining, defence, and shipping industries, among others. US President Donald Trump must first sign off on the bill before it is fully implemented.
