This measure may be a Kremlin attempt to exert political pressure on the United States.

The Russian authorities refused visas to 30 teachers of the Anglo-American school in Moscow, The New York Times writes with reference to the employee of the US Embassy in Moscow Heather Byrnes, who is also a member of the council in this educational institution.

According to the newspaper, this measure may be an attempt to exert political pressure on the United States by reducing educational opportunities for children of diplomats.

The New York Times notes that some students may have to be sent down due to a shortage of teachers.

Now the US is trying to convince the Kremlin "not to involve schoolchildren in political conflict," Byrnes noted.
