The Russian Foreign Ministry has demanded that the UK reduce the staff of the embassy and consulate generals


The ambassador was informed that, in response, the British side, within a month, should bring the total number of employees of the British Embassy in Moscow and the British General Consulates in Russia in line with the number of Russian diplomats and administrative-technical workers. on long trips in the UK
- Said in the Foreign Ministry.

British ambassador Laurie Bristow also protested "in connection with provocative and unreasonable actions of the British side, which inspired the baseless expulsion of Russian diplomats from a number of states."

Earlier, US State Department spokesman Heather Nauert said that Russia is on the path of self-isolation if it decided to send diplomats of all countries that expressed solidarity with London in the case of Skripal, reports "RT"

        The Matrassov Embassy in St. Petersburg and Yekaterinburg has long been asked to close. Especially after the capture of our embassies. Well, shaving should not be punished symmetrically, but in full, until the consulates gene is closed.

        But they had to be ordered to reduce employees not in a month, but in a three-day period. And the official justification for such an early expulsion is tied to the flagrant violation of legal norms.

        PS.
        I believe that all the diplomatic missions of the countries that followed the case of the woman of honor should bring their staff to parity with our diplomatic missions. If suddenly our employees are more then we can recall ourselves.
        By the way, with the USA now it’s kind of parity.

    Maybe it is precisely the federal law on the number of both foreign citizens in the Russian Federation and the number of diplomats that should be adopted as a measure of influence on angry foreigners? So that it does not depend on the good nature of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation and generally individuals.

    I would like in numbers, otherwise the news is kind of empty. When the Americans were “asked” to equalize, for example, I was surprised to learn that they have 700 embassy employees more than ours. Despite the fact that they are brazenly among our sweepers and UN diplomats, which requires, in fact, to raise the question of moving the UN headquarters somewhere to Switzerland, Austria or Finland.

      One gets the feeling that the government in the world is one, just the secretaries in the offices of the papers mixed up on the ground .. well, sometimes they cut the clerks .. - this is such a foreign policy .. I don’t think that dear Lavrov will ever deploy his plane over the Atlantic .. - it’s not even a matter of personal qualities .. It’s just that too much is tied to our “respected partners” in the Kremlin elite .. All these diplomatic shy answers to obviously insulting actions, such as the seizure of our citizens in other countries, the arrest of our diplomatic property, the detention of air and ships .. Alas, in due time, this was a normal occasion for declaring war and breaking off diplomatic relations .. And now our Ministry of Foreign Affairs is only perplexed to express and wipe off ... Because the bosses all have one thing - Monetary families and surnames that rule the world. Neither nationality nor country have absolutely no value now .. Circus puppets. And Russia, unfortunately, is also on this list ..

        There will be no war. They are not nuts. They have a plan, they are fulfilling it. Isolation, the image of the enemy "to all of humanity." And at the same time dishonest economic competition. But this is in case of weakening of Russia, troubles, etc. Restore your order under a plausible pretext.
        Only soon they will not be up to us - China has grown there, and strengthening the states at the expense of the territory and resources of Russia is not in his interests.
        I think the best thing for Russia is to keep the Strategic Missile Forces, stock up on seeds and choose the “right” ally in time (USA or China from circumstances). And then throw it if possible.

    The quantitative equality of Russian diplomats should be extended not only to the United States, and now to England, but also to other frantic countries, especially those that have completely lost their shores. We need to give change, the only way they will perceive us, otherwise they will completely unbelted. They call on how France to abide by international law, and Libya itself has been rolled out, all rights and common sense have been corrected, it turns out that their former president Sarkozy hid so as not to pay Gaddafi's debts !!!

    And these batfish need to search airplanes at Russian airports. In my years of work in Aeroflot, the commander and navigator had pistols (after the death of Nadezhda Kurchenko when the plane was hijacked to Turkey). And the jokers were shot at the back of the head ... And all sorts of strangers out there who, like yesterday in England, burst by force, could easily have been shot. Now it’s not aviation, but what the hell: a mixture of crooks and the institution of noble maidens ...
