Biden Admin Is Booting 24 More Russian Diplomats By September 

Russia has announced Monday that two dozen of its diplomats in the United States will essentially be booted from the country after their visas expire during the first week of September.

"Russia's ambassador to the United States said Washington had asked 24 Russian diplomats to leave the country by Sept. 3 after their visas expired," Reuters writes. "Anatoly Antonov did not say whether the US request was prompted by any particular dispute, and there was no immediate comment from Washington."

Moscow has cited stringent visa procedures which will likely bar the diplomats from being able to renew them. "Almost all of them will leave without replacements because Washington has abruptly tightened visa issuing procedures," Ambassador Antonov said on Sunday.
