"Decision on expulsion made": the Czech Foreign Ministry will reduce the composition of the Russian embassy

131

The Czech Republic will nevertheless reduce the number of employees of the Russian embassy, ​​bringing it to the level of the Czech diplomatic mission in Moscow, a decision has been made on this. This statement was made by the country's Foreign Minister Yakub Kulganek.


Thus, Prague is putting into effect the previously announced ultimatum, according to which Moscow was to return back all the employees of the Czech embassy expelled from the country. If the demands are not met, Kulganek promised to expel Russian diplomats in order to achieve "parity."

At the moment, it is not known how many Russians will be expelled from the Czech Republic, but earlier the head of the Czech Foreign Ministry announced the possible expulsion of up to 60 people. According to the latest information available, after the first "exchange", 27 diplomats and 67 technical employees remained at the Russian embassy in Prague, and 5 diplomats and 19 employees at the Czech embassy in Moscow.

As follows from Kulganek's statement, the Russian Foreign Ministry did not fulfill the requirements of Prague, therefore, it was decided to expel the Russians from the Czech Republic. Russian diplomats must leave the country by the end of May.

It is still unknown how the events will develop further; the Russian Foreign Ministry has not yet made official statements on this fact. The reaction to the actions of the Czechs will certainly follow, but what it will be interesting to know. Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry warned Prague that it is not permissible to talk with Russia from the position of ultimatums.

      The Czechs are no longer happy that they yapped ... Who did they do worse? Well, certainly not Russia ..
      I hope the Russian Foreign Ministry will go to the end, right up to the closure of the Czech embassy ..
      It is necessary to punish them and harshly, so that others will not be accustomed to.
      And our thieves love to buy real estate there ...

        It is very interesting how the Russian Foreign Ministry will react.

            Yes, it seems, this is just the beginning .. They will answer us for the desecration of the graves of Soviet soldiers .. By the way, the Czechs have big business in Russia and now they will have to dump everything by abandoning them, and they will quickly take their place .. I hope Russia will beat the Czechs not only politically, but also economically .. Enough to wipe off and turn the other cheek to the impudent .. Come on Volodya press, although the resistance will now be huge .. There in the Czech Republic many "our" real estate officials bought up and the children are kept there on the provision from Russia. These are the ones that need to be broken off first of all, so that the capital outflow and flight begin ... Otherwise, they settled there in the Russophobic Czech Republic and they don't blow a mustache ..

                    It's true, we can't do that. Arrest for nothing (she did not enter the territory of the Russian Federation) and then release. However, this is not about that, but about the benefits of diplomats in a particular country.

                And I do. It seems to me that ordinary Czechs are completely indifferent to their relations with the Russian Federation. This is understandable.

                  However, for the Czech Republic, Russia before the pandemic was in the top ten countries where tourists come from. According to the statistical office of the Czech Republic, in 2019, 564,8 thousand Russians visited the country and spent 2,3 million nights in Czech hotels and other accommodation facilities (in terms of the number of guests, Russia was in fourth place, in the number of overnight stays - in second) ... In 2020, Russians were not included in the top 10 guests in terms of the number of guests who arrived, so no exact data on the number of guests is provided. But in terms of the number of nights spent in Czech hotels in 2020, Russians ranked fourth with 536,2 thousand overnight stays. In neighboring Austria, for comparison, the Russians spent almost the same amount in 2020 - 519,8 thousand overnight stays.

        By the way, a couple of years ago, the Russian Federation demanded that the United States make the number of the US Embassy in Moscow equal to the number of the Russian Embassy in the United States. And that was done. The number of the US Embassy in Russia became equal to the number of the Russian Embassy in the US! Parity! Why should the number of the Russian Embassy in Prague be MORE than the number of the Czech Embassy in Moscow?

                Well, let's see what happens next.
                There is also a ban on hiring citizens of the Russian Federation to work at the Embassy of the Czech Republic should somehow affect the quantitative and qualitative composition of employees.
                And then you look, and the number of employees without a dip. status will begin to equalize - that's when, perhaps, the Czech authorities and howl.
                The expulsion of 20 Czech diplomats was a tough diplomatic fork for the Czech authorities:
                1. either they wipe themselves off from the "savory spit right in the face" (I would not be surprised if it turns out that they drove out all those who were smeared in reconnaissance operations);
                2. either they start shouting about the "equalization" of the number of diplomats in the embassies.
                Choosing the second option with "equalization", the Czech authorities are already on a more thoughtful equalization of the number all embassy workers, and maybe even other diplomas. representations. Perhaps the Russian Foreign Ministry will carry out these alignments in several successive steps, putting similar forks to the Czech authorities.
                I will hope that the Russian Foreign Ministry will be able to carry out all this in the most indicative way to exacerbate the rest of the nudging ones. And the more accurate, precise and very painful steps / blows there are, the greater the diplomatic effect will be achieved.

          There is no parity, there are 450 Americans in the diplomatic corps in Russia and 300 Russians in the diplomatic corps in the United States + 150 Russians at the UN, who are not diplomats, but mattresses take them into account in one team. To achieve parity, we need to send another 150 Americans, then there will be 300 diplomats in the diplomatic corps on both sides. Something like this hi

      In the afternoon it became known that Slovakia is also sending 3 russ. diplomat, in solidarity with the Czech Republic. In the following days, a reaction from other EU countries is expected, as the Czech Foreign Ministry appealed to them with an appeal for support. It should be noted here that the number of Russian diplomats in Europe significantly exceeds the number of European diplomats in Russia. In Europe, there is an opinion that there should be parity, and accordingly, the quantitative composition of Russian representations should be reduced significantly ...

Or when the lords are fighting among the slaves, their forelocks crack ... However, it is no longer possible to do otherwise, right up to the closure of the embassies, unless these same ambassadors agree otherwise. Then (after a lapse, I think not a very long time) they will still restore the original status of the ambassadors.

        The Czech Foreign Ministry talks about the quantitative reduction of the Russian mission in the Czech Republic. This is very different from just the expulsion of employees. We have sent 20 employees, and another twenty will arrive at their places. In fact, our mission in Prague was always numerically larger than the Czech mission in Moscow. Here is the new Foreign Ministry and decided to equalize this number. We are fighting the United States about the same issue today.

          Someone thinks that the Czechs spontaneously climbed on the rampage? I'm sure the aggravation was calculated. What will they or we lose? For example, the Russian Federation was pushed back from the tender for the construction of a nuclear power plant, but this is billions of dollars plus the ability to influence politics or fuel for nuclear power plants is not politics? It is in finances that one must look for the origins of current and not only events. And these reasons are sucked from the finger, if the Czechs had information from which the warehouse took off, no one would wait so long for accusations.

            Nobody was interested in the opinion of the Czechs. The market is being cleaned up by the USA. The USA is not interested in how events will develop in relations between Russia and the Czech Republic. It is important for them to stake out a contract for nuclear power plants and it is desirable to knock Russia out of other market segments where competition is possible. This is understandable ... In these deportations, I think, the Czechs are not the initiators at all. They are here like wooden soldiers at Oorfene Juice. They were given a command, they carry it out. Therefore, the whole situation might not have been calculated. There just isn't anyone. The United States does not need this, and the Czechs were not given the authority to do so.

        By refusing to participate in the RosAtom competition, the Czechs punished themselves well economically. Now they will have to maintain NPP blocks made according to different designs, if these blocks are made. I suppose that soon the Czechs will abandon the construction of new nuclear power units. In the absence of Russia, the rest of the applicants will hike prices.

          What is the way out? The Czech Republic itself raised the topic of the explosion in Vrbetica (2014), and it was after Biden's sanction ... a coincidence? definitely not. Moreover, the wave went on increasing, and for the place of quiet deportation of 2-3 diplomats, the Czech Republic expelled 18 Russian diplomats, + threw Rosatom out of the tender, we answered (and there was no answer for Rosatom) ... now the Czechs are again going to aggravate (yes and they also delivered an ultimatum). How can we answer? Send the 5 remaining diplomats in retaliation for the expulsion of 60 of our people ... an equivalent answer? not. So it is necessary to introduce sanctions of an economic / maybe tourist nature, but the Czechs will again respond and go to further aggravation ... so the situation is difficult, it looks logical here, lowering the dip. relations and the freezing of cooperation in all areas, but what the answer will be .... we'll see soon.

        No, this is more of a blow to the safety of the Czech population. The Czechs want a 1200 MW power unit to be built for them. Only ours can build such a block. This is so that it is reliable. The French and Koreans, in theory, can also build such a block ... Only there is a problem. They have not built such blocks yet.

          The Czechs will build Westinghouse. The Chinese were pushed aside last year, this is Rosatom. Areva did not come to the tender, the Koreans are loaded with the project in the UAE.

          Only ours can build such a block.


          Everyone can. Areva has the most powerful (in terms of supply to the grid) and modern reactor with a capacity of 1650 MW. 2 works in China, 1 in France.


          Czechs will build AP1000 - for 1250 gross. 4 reactors operate in China and 2 in the USA.



          The Koreans have a well-developed 1400 MW - 4 units have been built, 2 more are being built, and 4 units are being built for the Arabs. But again, they stupidly did not come to the competition, because they are fully loaded and cannot be completed on time.

            Truth? OK. Let them build. How much "the dog will grow" in price in the absence of competition "at the end of the road" we will see. By the way, how is Westinghouse? Still alive? And another moment. Is Westinghouse the same? Are they supplying new fuel rods, but the used ones are not taken away? Ours are taking away .. I hope the Czechs and the Ukrainians have already agreed on where they will carry the detention?
            Areva has the most powerful (in terms of supply to the grid) and modern reactor of 1650 MW .... The Koreans have a well-developed 1400 MW

            Perfectly! Do they have 1200 MW? Not 1650 and 1400, but 1200 ... Why 1200? Is it because there are ... some nuances, let's say, in the fact that the nuclear power plant will not be built from scratch. There is already the first stage, built in the mid-80s (it seems). Even if we spit on the power unit itself (build whatever you want), no one can do without the support of Rosatom. Dumb, somehow, you know ... The point is not iron, here it is, and the bench press ... If something happens, who will answer? Again Petrov and Bashirov? Super agents of all times and peoples ...

            Czechs are brave people. Give the contract to Westinghouse ... Suicides ... "We sing a song to the madness of the brave", yeah, yeah ...

              So the Yankees have just 1200 - AP1000. The Chinese have 2 nuclear power plants at these units (Sanmen and Shandong). The first is 100% commissioned (2 blocks as planned), the second is only the first stage, and then Trump came and the Chinese canceled 4 more blocks. Now they are building their own (others).

    There is only one option - in 24 hours to expel all Czech diplomats from Russia. Stop putting up with spies hiding behind diplomatic immunity and rocking the country from within. It would be time for that Czech Republic to indicate a place in the table about the ranks of the countries that are adequate, otherwise they think of themselves as a fig knows that, although in fact, it is an ordinary colony of the USA, serving the owner even at the cost of losing self-respect on our part.

"Creative" and "effective" in terms of sticking to the budget (directly and through business chains / feeders) - this will be bad. We'll have to do real work, and not solve the problem and not redistribute the dough.

    A chess country needs chess sanctions. There should be no preferences for Czech business in Russia. And it is imperative to check it for corruption, check it over the past 10 years, and especially in 2014 at the Sochi Olympics. Now it is not diplomacy that must have its say, but business, the authorities and the government of Russia. And there is no need to advertise anything, quietly and peacefully let the Czechs understand that they are not welcome in Russia.

    This is a twist ... The Czechs seem to be going to act according to a child's saying: "Don't play with my toys, don't go into my pot! Everything is torn between us and the path is trampled!"
    I wonder if there will be a person in the Czech Republic who will whisper in the ear to the Czech president (or whoever they have) that both Czech nuclear power plants operating today were built by specialists from the USSR and Soviet reactors were installed there, which should be serviced by Russian specialists. This is not because "religion does not allow", but because no one else can do it with the required level of SECURITY ...
    No, I understand that the Czechs are sure that ours will not dare to stop servicing the power units. Well, "blessed is he who believes" (C).
    And if the confidence is not justified ... Suddenly VVP will think that some people in the Czech Republic have gorged themselves on porridge and order to suspend the maintenance of power units ... Anything can happen ... Especially after VVP's statements during the last message to the Federal Assembly. So let's see what material the testicles are made of in our guide.
    And another nuance. Apart from Rosatom, no one can build a power unit with a capacity of 1200 MW (the Czechs want this capacity). Rather, the French and Koreans can, but ... But they have never built blocks of such capacity before ...
    Someone in the Czech Republic said something about what will not allow Rosatom to participate in the tender? Nu-nu ... Flag in hand, drum on the neck ...

    2. The Russian Federation proposed to build a high-quality, inexpensive power unit of the nuclear power plant, with the supply of fuel and the return of waste. Not? Well, buy more expensive.
    3. Tourists from the Russian Federation bring significant income to the budget of the Czech Republic, they will close direct communication, but whoever needs it, will open Schengen and enter through third countries, but an ordinary tourist does not need this crap.
    4. The trade turnover is ~ 1 billion dollars, or maybe not.

    By May 31, the number of employees of Russia and the Czech Republic in the embassies of both countries will be reduced to seven diplomats. This was reported to TASS by the Russian Foreign Ministry.

    "Both sides [by May 31] will have seven diplomats, 25 administrative and technical [employees] and 19 hired. Irresponsible and provocative behavior of the Czech authorities hurt their diplomatic service," the Foreign Ministry said.

    The Czech Embassy in Moscow, thus, will thin out by 16 diplomats, four administrative and technical employees and 91 in place of the received employee.

Surely we also have such, i.e. "these citizens" of protection from our state, both legally and morally, are unworthy!
