breezy posted a topic in General DiscussionU.S. expels 35 Russian diplomats, closes two compounds: official Dec. 29, 2016 Lesley Wroughton "The United States expelled 35 Russian diplomats and closed two Russian compounds in New York and Maryland in response to a campaign of harassment against American diplomats in Moscow, a senior U.S. official said on Thursday. The move against the diplomats from the Russian embassy in Washington and consulate in San Francisco is part of a series of actions announced on Thursday to punish Russia for a campaign of intimidation of American diplomats in Moscow and interference in the U.S. election. The Obama administration was also announcing on Thursday a series of retaliatory measures against Russia for hacking into U.S. political institutions and individuals and leaking information to help President-elect Donald Trump and other Republican candidates, two U.S. officials said. Trump, who takes office on Jan. 20, has called for better relations with Russia. It was not clear if he will be able to immediately overturn the measures announced on Thursday." snip http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-russia-cyber-idUSKBN14I1TY bound and determined to leave everything in a state of chaos on his way out
A technician from Russia's space agency at a monitor station in Brazil "The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Pentagon have been waging a campaign to prevent a major Russian space agency from building what they perceive to be spying structures on US soil, a report says. American intelligence and military officials have been calling on the State Department to stop allowing Roscosmos to build “monitor stations” on US soil for fears they could help Russia spy on the United States, The New York Times said, citing several American officials. Moscow rejects the structures have anything to do with surveillance operations, contending they are designed to improve the accuracy of Russia’s version of the Global Positioning System (GPS), the American satellite network that steers guided missiles to their targets and helps passengers with navigation. “They don’t want to be reliant on the American system and believe that their systems, like GPS, will spawn other industries and applications,” said a former senior official in the State Department’s Office of Space and Advanced Technology." snip http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2013/11/17/335087/cia-pentagon-fear-spying-from-russia/ but what the heck? it's ok to train Russian soldiers on our soil though isn't it??and we don't seem to mind much when we spy on everyone else, right??? pot meet kettle!!
