Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin has signed an order to nullify the Russian-US memorandum of understanding (MOU) on "open ground" that facilitated travels for diplomats in their host country.

Mishustin asked the Russian Foreign Ministry to inform the US side of the termination, according to the order published on Thursday on the country's official legal information website.

The MOU signed in Washington in June 1992 allowed Russian and US diplomats to tour their host country simply on notification, without seeking permission.

The intention to end the MOU was first announced by the Russian Foreign Ministry on April 16, when it unveiled a slew of countermeasures to "hostile US actions.
