NATO expels eight Russian diplomats from Russia's mission to the alliance

86

The North Atlantic Alliance has decided to reduce the Russian mission to NATO. According to the British television channel Sky News, the Russian representation is being cut in half.

According to the TV channel, NATO has decided to expel eight Russian diplomats and reduce the mission's staff by two more. The reason for the expulsion was called "hostile activities of Russia." The alliance believes that all eight expelled Russians are intelligence officers. The reason for the reduction of two more positions in NATO was not explained.



NATO has decided to halve the size of Russia's mission to the Alliance in response to suspicions of Russian malicious activity, including assassinations and espionage. 8 diplomats deemed to be undeclared intelligence officers will be asked to leave and 2 other positions will be removed

- wrote on Twitter the editor of the Sky News channel Deborah Haynes.

Currently, the number of the Russian permanent mission to NATO is twenty people. After the expulsion of eight Russians and the reduction of two positions, only ten people will remain in the mission. That is, NATO is cutting the Russian representation by half.

Earlier, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg called on the alliance countries to establish cooperation with Russia in order to avoid a new arms race and a cold war. At the same time, Moscow noted that relations between Russia and NATO have recently been at their lowest point, interaction has almost come to naught.

        Mr. Pushkov is something. He may be a good person and a patriot, but ...
        Whatever correct words he said in his well-trained voice, I have an absolutely strong impression that he does not go to PACE to defend Russia's interests, but has some personal interests of his own.
        Little house, kids are out there, maybe grandchildren. Yes, and just dash through boutique shops, drink some coffee in a Strasbourg cafe, which, again, Karlsruhe is nearby - mineral waters / spa world famous, a little further - Bodensee, an exceptionally picturesque mountain lake between Germany and Switzerland, vineyards. Yes, and all sorts of Basel / Zurich. And all this by car, within 2 hours of driving. Lafa!

          Yes ... I did not expect this from you. If you said that all of our people should leave PACE, I would support you with both hands. But we need a hotline with NATO. Without it, any incident, accidental shooting, a crashed drone or something similar can trigger an aggravation up to the actual use of force between our power groups. And this can already be fatal. I think that the United States, being in a rather critical position both in domestic politics and in its debt relationship to the whole world, sees the solution to all problems in the war. So they are pushing Europe, like a locomotive without a driver, to meet us halfway in the hope of a small, preferably non-nuclear "get-together" in Europe, thinking to sit out behind a puddle. Even during the Cuban missile crisis, such a line of communication between the heads of the USSR and the United States existed, and, in fact, it helped to avoid the hot phase of the conflict.

      The imitation was for NATO members, but they kind of "saw through" them and therefore they are being expelled.
      So they were poorly camouflaged and encrypted, since they got caught. This is a big minus to them.
      But in order to maintain parity, their agents must be rooted out and sent at the first opportunity.
      And Stoltenberg should be banned from entering the Russian Federation (if not already done) and added to the black list.
