According to a US media, the investigation has concluded and the White House is currently analyzing the expulsion of Russian diplomats and the imposition of sanctions on senior Moscow officials.

“I have read reports that the (US) Administration concluded the review of the hostile actions of Russia. They have done it very quickly, because they accuse us of so many sins and that cannot be done in a couple of weeks, not even in a couple of months “, dijo Lavrov.
