Press release on summoning foreign ambassadors to the Foreign Ministry

Friday, 30 March 2018 11:18

On March 30, the Foreign Ministry summoned the heads of diplomatic missions from Australia, Albania, Germany, Denmark, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Canada, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Ukraine, Finland, France, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Sweden and Estonia.

They were handed notes of protest and told that the Russian Federation declares persona non grata the relevant number of diplomats from these countries working in diplomatic missions in Russia in response to their unjustified expulsions of Russian diplomats based on Britain’s proof-free accusations of Russia related to the Skripal case.

Considering that Belgium, Hungary, Georgia and Montenegro decided to join these countries at the last minute, Russia reserves for itself the right to take response measures as regards these states.
