The Trump administration ordered the closure of the Consulate General of Russia in Seattle, Monday. The move comes in response to the poisoning of Sergei Skripal in the UK’s Salisbury, which Britain has blamed on Russia.

US President Donald Trump also ordered the expulsion of around 60 Russian diplomats from the US, while 16 members of the EU have also decided to expel Russian diplomats following the UK’s lead.
