Austrian Foreign Ministry accused London of pushing the issue of the expulsion of Russian diplomats

57
The British ambassador in Vienna repeatedly tried to impose on the Austrian authorities a decision to expel Russian ambassadors from the country, reports RIA News statement by Austrian Foreign Minister Karin Kneisl.




According to the minister, the British ambassador tried to influence the Austrian authorities to send Russian diplomats after other EU countries, "but Austria categorically refused such measures."

Kneisl also responded to criticism of the former Austrian representative to the OSCE in the fight against radicalization and violent extremism, Peter Neumann, who accused Vienna of “burning bridges”.

She stressed that the government came to such a decision "not because of a possible response from Moscow, but because of the need to maintain a dialogue."

In addition, the minister recalled that "Austria joined the European Union in 1995 as a neutral state, which was supported by other member states."

Recall that earlier a number of EU countries "in solidarity" with London announced the expulsion of Russian diplomats. This step is associated with poisoning in the British Salisbury, a former employee of the GRU, Sergei Skripal. The blame for the poisoning of the British authorities laid on Russia, without presenting any evidence.

    Here they are, and they handed over British policy at the highest level, I think now it’s not worth asking the question who is interfering in the internal affairs of other countries.

        Austria has not destroyed a single monument to Soviet soldiers.
        Even in 90 when Russia stopped transferring money for maintenance, Austria pulled everything at its own expense.
        It also honors her that Austria refused to cooperate with NATO in the bombing of Yugoslavia, since there was no sanction from the UN Security Council.

        That's why he is trying. In general, very sane and sane people live there, judging by those with whom I talked. Just yesterday, one acquaintance of the Austrian wrote that in his circle of friends everyone supported their new chancellor, who said that he was not going to expel anyone, in general, not to bark in this small world.
        Well, pragmatism, of course, plays a role :): Austria has a lot of economic ties with the Russian Federation. For example, almost all the steel there is Russian (the guy works in the field of heavy goods, he is engaged in robots).

        “German-speaking Austria is Germany’s main ally in the project. After the 2017 elections in Austria, a pro-Russian coalition from the People’s Party was formed, whose leader and now Chancellor of Austria Sebastian Kurtz is known as a sharp critic of US attempts to block Nord Stream - 2 and signed as Austrian Foreign Minister a sharp letter to the US Congress in conjunction with German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel, the People’s Party’s partner is the Freedom Party, which has a reputation of “friends of Russia” and is in favor of lifting sanctions from the Russian Federation.

        There is rather a different factor. The Anglo-American gang did not do well with the advancement in Austria of its puppet government. Therefore, Austria has the opportunity to express its opinion against the will of the arrogant Saxons. But at the same time, the corporate spirit of the EU also follows.

            They have long slipped into primitivism in the absence of worthy political rivals, such as the USSR. They do not want to see that playing this performance through their puppets, they discredit them before the voters. As a result, these puppets sit on the throne only until the next election. Merkelsha also played her. If there was this scandal with "poisoning" before its election, in general, it could not get through the next term.

    After the First World War, which was triggered by the memorable assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo by the terrorist Gavrila Principle, Vienna rethought its policy and no longer wants to serve as a glowing candle in fueling conflicts in Europe. The British are still dreaming of their imperial consciousness, although in essence they are a dwarf who has preserved the rudiments of an empire, several sub-sub-countries and territories, and huge financial flows that flow into British offshore and the City of London. At the same time, they apparently do not realize that Britain is no longer a fortress from modern destructive weapons.

    Austria has been pursuing its independent policy in Europe for a long time. Even in the 30ies of the last century, the Austrians were very offended by the Germans during the actual occupation of Austria by Hitler and the seizure of its gold reserves. traveled to Austria and was at the owner of his winery. his father and art. brother died on the eastern front, but he has no complaints against us. offended by the Germans for their demobilization. in the 90s they kept all the commemorative plaques hanged in the USSR, and not just the monuments. it’s really nice to deal with such a Europortner.
