As stated in the Austrian Foreign Ministry, the actions of the employee of the Russian embassy "contradict the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations."

I can confirm that a Russian diplomat will be expelled. His behavior is contrary to the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations

- said the official representative of the Austrian Foreign Ministry, Claudia Türcher.

Vladimir Dzhabarov, First Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on International Affairs, said that in recent months there have been several similar incidents when Russian diplomatic officials were expelled from European countries.

This is a bad trend. We need to think about why this is happening, who is leading this anti-Russian campaign

- he added.

Meanwhile, the Russian Foreign Ministry said that it was outraged by the unfounded decision of the Austrian authorities, Moscow would respond to this in a mirror image.

    Of course, we must answer in a mirror-like manner ... there should be no exceptions ... our partners are too impudent when their pranks are forgiven.
    Our Foreign Ministry needs to react harder ... do not forget to impose sanctions on the organizers of these pranks.

          Or maybe our special services have just become more unprofessional to work because of the poor training of operational officers? However, one should not forget that in the era of total control it is becoming more and more difficult to hide the work of operational officers abroad, which is why the number of expelled diplomats will grow, and you just need to accept this, and not look for some kind of order. Well, as a counterbalance to this, it is necessary to further subsidize the development of technical means of intelligence, which, in terms of efficiency, many times exceed the capabilities of undercover workers.

Unfortunately, I am not familiar with the level of work and professionalism of the Russian Federation intelligence officers in diplomatic uniform.

              Well, they announced - and announced.
              We will answer "mirrored" - and everyone will forget (unless the incident is specially inflated).
              Diplomats in another country are by definition collecting data. And if they manage to grab something serious, they will not miss it.
              So it's a working moment.

    We need to think about why this is happening, who runs this anti-Russian company
    Before you had to think about who and why. Played into the "correct" international relations, morality and honesty. We are on the snout - we are about the violation of international diplomatic norms, our property is impudently taken away - we have been thinking for half a year how to answer so as not to offend ... It is high time to play according to the rules that the West established - the absence of any rules and decency, but only exclusively own benefit and inflicting tangible losses on the enemy.

    In turn, according to the publication,
    ... the Russian refused to testify, citing diplomatic immunity.

          What do you mean by "loyalty of a European country" towards Russia? Austria is a member of the EU, the EU is a colonization organization.

            Putin was greeted there as something with honors and sincerely .. Even to the wedding was invited and in my opinion he even came .. And then suddenly such a sharp turn.

    Austria is not included in NATO!
    19.08.2018/2018/XNUMX, Putin was at the wedding of the Austrian Foreign Minister - Karin Kneissl, danced with her. And already in November XNUMX, a scandal erupted. Austrian Foreign Ministry accused Russia of espionage. Less than two years later, the same thing happened again. Maybe he stepped on her foot in fright, looking at her face.

    In Western countries, there is little that depends on the first person. Although a parliamentary republic, of which the majority, even after the model of Germany, Austria, even the United States. You have already noticed that in none of this country is it possible to make any decisions with anyone; there, no one is responsible for anything. Today they will sign an agreement, an agreement, and tomorrow they will throw it into the trash can.

    The most important thing is who is the organizer and why such an attack in Russia now? This can also be answered asymmetrically.
