Putin Friend to the USA – level 2
American media said that Russia directed cyberattacks on Hillary Clinton’s election campaign. US President Obama reacted to this. He told 35 Russian diplomats to leave the USA.
Sergey Lavrov is the Russian foreign minister. He tells Russian President Putin to expel 35 American diplomats from Moscow. Putin, however, is not going to do this. He says that he does not want to be like the USA. He wants to work with the USA.
Difficult words: direct (manage, control), election campaign (when politicians show people why they should vote for them), expel (make leave).
