«We have not heard from American colleagues official statements about the exact or approximate number of employees of diplomatic and consular establishments of the United States on the territory of Russia», — says Zakharov.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said earlier that the staff of the U.S. mission in Russia is the same as the staff of the diplomatic mission of Russia in America by 455 people on each side. The U.S. state Department considered Moscow’s actions unjustified and promised to respond to them. The Russian foreign Ministry on 28 July urged the United States until September 1 to bring the number of diplomats and technical staff of the diplomatic mission in Moscow in accordance with the number of employees of the Russian diplomatic missions in the United States.
