ABOUT TWENTY COUNTRIES WILL EXPELL 112 RUSSIAN DIPLOMATS FOR THE POISONING OF THE FORMER SPY

Madrid / At least 112 Russian diplomats will be expelled by the Governments from 21 Western countries in response to the poisoning on British area of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, which the United Kingdom attributes to Russia.

The decision to expel 23 Russian diplomats adopted by London a week ago was joined today by the United States, which announced the withdrawal of 60 from the country, and a group of 16 EU countries, which agreed to the departure of a total of 33 Russian representatives.

From Moscow, which denies the accusations, the spokeswoman for Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Maria Zajárova, recalled that no evidence of them has been provided and warned that there will be a response for each country for the expulsions.

The spokeswoman recalled the United Kingdom has asked for solidarity with the EU, but said that “everyone has forgotten that the United Kingdom is leaving the European Union”, so, with its positioning “puts a mine in the long-term actions of all those countries that are beginning to adopt anti-Russian policies. “

Led by France, Poland and Germany, with the expulsion of four diplomats each, the Czech Republic (3), Lithuania (3), Denmark (2), Italy (2), Holland (2), joined the European list. Spain (2) Finland (1), Hungary (1) Romania (1), Latvia (1), Estonia (1), Croatia (1) and Sweden (1).

Portugal did not announce expulsions, like Belgium, whose government will deal with the matter on Tuesday, while the Austrian government appealed to its status as a “neutral” country to avoid expulsions.

EU gave its support to British Government and the President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, said it is “highly probable” that Russia is responsible for the assassination attempt and that “there is no other plausible explanation” for it.

The spokeswoman for U.S. State Department, Heather Nauert, said in a statement that the 60 expulsions and the closure of the Russian consulate in Seattle (Washington), which was also decided, seek to show “unwavering solidarity with UK” and “impose consequences on Russia for its constant violations of international standards.”

The 60 officials, whom Washington accuses of being “intelligence officers” protected by diplomatic immunity, must leave the United States within a week. As for the consulate in Seattle, it must be closed before April 2, as well.

Despite the fact that on March 15, the Treasury Department sanctioned five entities and 19 Russian people for their attempt to interfere in the 2016 presidential election through cyber attacks, numerous critical voices had asked Trump for more hard-line with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.
