Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said the mirror response will be applied if Russian diplomats are expelled from the United States.
"We are used to not be guided by media reports. We have not yet heard or seen any official statements from Washington about the alleged expulsion of our diplomats. We will be guided by facts and statements voiced by officials, not by media reports. Of course, the mirror response will be applied in each such case," Peskov told journalists, according to an UNIAN correspondent in Russia.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the United States and a number of EU member states will announce on Monday their decision to expel Russian diplomats as a response to a spy poisoning on British soil.
