Newsline: Czech Ministry Urges Russian Diplomats to Quit Over Ukraine War

The Czech foreign ministry appealed to Russian diplomats on Friday to resign over their country’s invasion of Ukraine to avoid becoming accomplices in the “apocalyptic destruction” of a sovereign country. “Colleagues, we implore those of you who have a conscience and who maintain the capacity to recognize evil: take yourself out of this circle of accomplices,” the European Union-member country’s foreign ministry said. In a letter posted first on Twitter, and then emailed to Reuters by the ministry’s press department in a response to questions, the ministry urged Russian diplomats to leave a “sinking ship”.

Relations between the EU and Russia have hit a historic low in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the largest attack on a European nation since World War Two.
