Not farther than 25 miles from diplomatic mission buildings - that's the travel limit for Russian diplomats in the U.S.
The U.S. House of Representatives agreed to restrict movement of Russian diplomatic officers and envoys within the territory of the United States.
The lower chamber of the U.S. Congress approved a draft bill providing the ban on travels for over 25 miles away from mission buildings for Russian diplomats. Also, the document includes additional measures such as creating a committee on opponency towards Russia's hidden influence in the country.
The mentioned restrictive measures were invoked to resist Russia's intelligence activities, the document says.
The draft bill was filed in by the U.S. House of Representatives intelligence committee David Newns, the document gained support from 371 congressmen.
