Very many rude curses”, — said the interlocutor of the edition.
Dissatisfaction with trump was the fact that in the end, Washington took the most stringent measures against Moscow, although the President was not going to do that. As writes the edition, he hoped to send as many employees of the Russian diplomatic mission, sent how much each European state individually. “We will send as much as they [the European countries]. We will not take on a dominant role,” he said, when the decision was made.
However, the administration of his words are interpreted differently and the next day announced the recall of 60 diplomats, which is almost three times the number sent by UK employees of Russian representative offices.
