Russia responded quid pro quo Thursday to the wave of Western expulsions of Russian diplomats over the poisoning of an ex-spy and his daughter in Britain, while a hospital treating the pair said the woman is improving rapidly and is out of critical condition.British authorities blamed Russia for poisoning them with a military-grade nerve agent, accusations Russia has vehemently denied.Lavrov added that just as he was making the statement, U.S. Ambassador Jon Huntsman was invited to the Foreign Ministry, where he was handed notice that Russia is responding quid pro quo to the U.S. decision to order 60 Russian diplomats out.The Foreign Ministry said the U.S. diplomats, including 58 diplomats from the U.S. Embassy in Moscow and two from the U.S. consulate in Yekaterinburg, must leave Russia by April 5 .The ministry warned that in case the U.S. takes further "hostile actions" against Russian missions, Russia will respond in kind.
