Newsline: Russia will respond to Bulgaria’s ‘hostile’ expulsion of diplomats

The Russian Embassy to Sofia said that Bulgaria’s decision to expel 70 Russian diplomatic staff was a hostile action to which Moscow would respond accordingly. In a statement on its Telegram channel, Ambassador Eleonora Mitrofanova said that declaring 34 diplomats and 36 staff personae non gratae together as a list was an “unprecedented hostile step.” “The government of the Russian Federation is reserving its right of reciprocal, possibly asymmetric response to such hostile actions,” she said.
