Recall that it, the night flew to Moscow, spent some hours in the airport and then the return flight was sent to Holland, forbidden to return to Russia.

Later, the Russian foreign Ministry issued a statement in which he called Shell “one of the organizers of large-scale false anti-Russian propaganda, financed from the us budget.” It is, apparently, in particular, the radio “Voice of America” and “Radio Liberty”, which is responsible for the Shell-led organization.

In connection with this situation Venediktov and suggested that now we should expect the response of the United States: recall that the leadership of the Federal TV channels of Russia has escaped a ban to enter Western countries and freezing accounts, similar action in the United States have circulated only on the head of the MIA “Russia today” Dmitry Kiselev.

The expulsion of the Shell occurred on the eve of visit to Moscow by U.S. Secretary of state John Kerry, who should discuss with Russian colleagues the situation in Syria.

In addition, in recent days, a diplomatic row erupted between Russia and USA because of the attack of the FSB in Moscow on the employee of the American Embassy, which, according to media reports, he was working there undercover. After the incident, the parties mutually expelled two diplomats each.
