Russia promises to respond....Lavrov ... The spiral downwards continues ... not good for those with RU / US relatives / friends or loved ones  ( potential or otherwise ) and I'm scared it will spread to other western nations ((

Well, that's a fib.

The US started this, Russia, as you noted, simply responds.

Have the US returned the diplomatic Russian owned real estate they stole yet I wonder?

I think Russians will have to go to Kiev for USA diplomatic services. We will likely expand the embassy there and USAians will find it very hard to get visas to go to Russia. Maybe the way to look at this is just another sanction to discourage investment in Russia. This also would be another way to expand help of the government in Kiev. Surely Putin will play into this and do something that will start the next response to bring about this goal.  I think what happened here Russia made the USA have the same number of people that Russia has in the USA. Now the USA makes Russia have the same number of diplomatic locations as the USA has in Russia. I am not sure what Putin's next response will be but if it is much of one we will likely very soon we will just send there diplomats home.  As Trump said, this will cut government jobs and save the USA taxpayer money. Most USAians do not care about going to Russia and do not care if any Russian come here or not.

 The answer to your question is NO!!  The USA never took the property. Russia can sell locations or keep it hoping for a future day when they can use it again. The way to look at it those locations still belong to Russia they just lost their license to do business there. Now there will be more locations that are just like the first ones.

Manny why would you care about how many Russians diplomats and spies are in the USA? You always seem to want USAians to go home so why shouldn't Russian go home also?

It benefits both countries to have decent diplomatic relations. The way it's going, all embassies of the other will be closed in both countries. People should be afforded the convenience of visa applications and associated consular services in both countries.

I note today the US is again breaking international law and various conventions by having the FBI raid one of the Russian diplomatic properties.

It is my view that the US is all bent out of shape because of >>this<<, which will aid the long-planned de-dollarisation enormously. I've said before that as US influence and dollar usage declines, the US wont go down with out a fight and will go down screaming and lashing out. We see that here and we see it with North Korea. It's a process.

Good for China. De dollarization would eventually cause the CIA/MIC complex to crash which would be a good thing for those of us against the Globalists. That is the hope. Will it work? Who has a crystal ball?

It is a process but those in control in the United States are not idiots. There's a window that is closing. There's lots we can't see but what we can see suggests that the pace of escalation from the U.S is picking up with a view to avoiding missing the window.

That sums up the unfortunate reality, not sure I would want to call it a legacy.

He just has a big ego and rt news to cover his tracks.

Texan, even if Russia was to remove all the United states diplomatic staff, it won't effect Russians from getting a passport.
Russia issues passports to their own.
If you mean Russians acquiring a tourist or other types of visa to visit the United states, it's very doubtful it will come to that.
As for Putin's intelligence, you would be hard pressed to find a current world leader that could match Putin's insight on world affairs.
