Prohibition of employment Foreign employees at US embassies and consulates in the Russian Federation led to the dismissal of 182 US diplomatic officials in the country. This was stated by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.
We are talking about local (Russian) employees of the US Embassy in Moscow, consulates general in Ekaterinburg and Vladivostok.
As Blinken noted, forced redundancies will negatively affect the work of US diplomatic missions, including staff security and interaction with Russian authorities.
Formerly US Ambassador to the Russian Federation John Sullivan, announced that from August 1, 2021, the embassy will no longer be able to provide consular services to Russian citizens since the ban on employing Russian personnel in US diplomatic missions.
