On Tuesday, Russia condemned the United States for putting pressure on allies to expel its diplomats, saying the expulsions were the result of “colossal pressure” by the United States.

“This is the result of colossal pressure, colossal blackmail which is the main instrument of Washington on the international arena,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in Uzbekistan.

“We’ll respond, have no doubt! No one wants to put up with such loutish behaviour and we won’t.”
