The U.S. has expelled 12 Russian diplomats for allegedly “engaging in espionage activities” that threaten national security, a spokesperson for the U.S. Mission to the United Nations said Monday. The 12 “operatives” abused their privileges of U.S. residency, said spokesperson Olivia Dalton. The move to expel the diplomats “has been in the works for several months,” Dalton said.
