The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) will stop operating in Russia, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said in a statement on Tuesday.

“The United States recently received the Russian government’s decision to end USAID activities in the Russian Federation. We are extremely proud of what USAID has accomplished in Russia over the past two decades, and we will work with our partners and staff to responsibly end or transition USAID’s programs,” Nuland said.

“While USAID’s physical presence in Russia will come to an end, we remain committed to supporting democracy, human rights, and the development of a more robust civil society in Russia and look forward to continuing our cooperation with Russian non-governmental organizations,” she said.
