Russian officials also announced on Thursday that it will expel 65 diplomats from E.U. countries as well as eight other countries, including Canada, Australia and Norway.
This comes just days after the U.S. joined the U.K. and more than a dozen other countries in expelling Russian diplomats, and closing down consulates.
The expulsions were prompted by Prime Minister Theresa May, who wanted to punish Russia for allegedly poisoning a former spy and his daughter on British soil.
