Every time there is a diplomatic scandal ending in expulsion of Russian diplomats, with the following countermeasures by Russia, it makes me wonder. What if Russia did not respond by expelling other country’s diplomats (kind of like what Putin did during the Obama-to-Trump transition)? What would the consequences be? Why does our foreign ministry feel obliged to, as they put it, "respond"? I mean, even if there were some weird diplomatic protocol that required a country to kick out someone's diplomats if theirs were kicked out, why not just fuck the protocol? Why not shrug it off?
