Hopefully, the US will draw the right conclusions from these diplomatic expulsions and finally give up meddling in Russian internal affairs. These two US diplomats had unacceptably assigned Shonov to collect vital information about the special military operation and undermine Russia's national security in exchange for money. Russia is justified in expelling these problematic diplomats.
This ill-founded expulsion is yet another sign that Moscow will not refrain from harassing foreign diplomatic personnel, even if that means further confrontation and escalation. Allegations against Sillin and Bernstein are completely without merit, as is the case against Shonov, giving Washington no option other than responding appropriately to these actions.
There's a 4% chance that there will be a deadly clash between the US and Russian armed forces before 2024, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
