The US and Russia have an interesting relationship, and that’s an understatement. Putin’s ego was recently bruised when The US and allies decided to oust Russian diplomats.
“Over the past few days, 25 European countries – along with the US, Canada, and Australia – expelled more than 120 Russian diplomats in a show of solidarity with the UK after the alleged attack.”
The Russian Ambassador stationed in Australia had this to say in response to being exiled:
“the world is heading to a “Cold War situation.” He warned.
The move was made in light of the poisoning of the ex-spy, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter. Both survived the attack, but the incident increased the tension between Russia and The West. Putin did not take credit for the poisoned spy, and claims accusations are “nonsense.”
He went on to say that his country doesn’t have chemicals like that, as they got rid of them as part of a treaty.
Putin has reacted to the exiling of Russia’s ambassadors. He has “expelled 59 diplomats from 23 countries.”

Countries spoke out about the Russian expulsions:
“This is certainly not a surprise,” Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok said through a spokeswoman, referring to Moscow’s expulsion of two of the country’s diplomats.”
“This doesn’t change the facts of the matter: the attempted assassination of two people on British soil, for which there is no alternative conclusion other than that the Russian State was culpable,” a spokeswoman for Britain’s Foreign Office said.”
“In Washington, the State Department said Thursday there was no justification for the Russian move and that the United States “reserves the right to respond”.
“It’s clear from the list provided to us that the Russian Federation is not interested in a dialogue on issues that matter to our two countries,” spokeswoman Heather Nauert said of the expelled diplomats.”
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Russia’s expulsion of US diplomats marked a “further deterioration” in relations.”
Putin, offended by this turn of events, decided to show off his military strength by test firing Satan 2. Which is an Intercontinental Ballistic Missle, that will supposedly reach anywhere in the world?
“Russia has also threatened to convene a session of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons in response to what it says is a failure by the U.K. and other Western nations to comply with its own investigation into the incident.”
Could this poisoning be the beginning of the end of Diplomatic relations with Russia? Or worse, the beginning of an international conflict?
