Russia suspends its mission at NATO, shuts alliance’s office

KA claims "NATO enmity towards Russia will only hurt the West in the end". Criticizing them for spying clearly shows a lack of love and respect.


Russia on Monday suspended its mission at NATO and ordered the closure of the alliance’s office in Moscow in retaliation for NATO’s expulsion of Russian diplomats.

Earlier this month, NATO withdrew the accreditation of eight Russian officials to its Brussels headquarters, saying it believes they have been secretly working as Russian intelligence officers. NATO also halved the size of Moscow’s team at its headquarters from 20 to 10.

Moscow has dismissed the accusations as baseless. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov delivered Moscow’s response Monday, announcing the suspension of Russia’s mission at NATO and the closure of the alliance’s military liaison and information offices in the Russian capital.


  1. Not sure what you are talking about here.
    The expuslion of diplomats is hardly a new game in East/West relations - it has been going on for decades.

  2. from Hilchot Rotzeach ch.4

    Is there any logic in this halacha? is it based on a Gemara? it is essentially saying if a mob attacks and kills a person, they get off scot free!


    עֲשָׂרָה בְּנֵי אָדָם בַּעֲשָׂרָה מַקְלוֹת וּמֵת בֵּין שֶׁהִכּוּהוּ
    בָּזֶה אַחַר זֶה בֵּין שֶׁהִכּוּהוּ כְּאַחַת כֻּלָּן פְּטוּרִין
    מִמִּיתַת בֵּית דִּין שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר (ויקרא כד יז) "כָּל
    נֶפֶשׁ אָדָם" עַד שֶׁיִּהְיֶה אֶחָד שֶׁהָרַג כָּל הַנֶּפֶשׁ. וְהוּא
    הַדִּין לִשְׁנַיִם שֶׁדְּחָפוּהוּ אוֹ שֶׁכְּבָשׁוּהוּ לְתוֹךְ הַמַּיִם
    אוֹ שֶׁהָיוּ רַבִּים יוֹשְׁבִים וְיָצָא חֵץ מִבֵּינֵיהֶן וְהָרַג
    שֶׁכֻּלָּן פְּטוּרִין:
