The EU and the US called on Russia to ensure the normal operation of diplomatic missions

The EU and the US called on Russia to ensure the normal operation of diplomatic missions, according to a statement following the EU-US summit.

“We call on Russia to ensure that foreign diplomatic missions can work reliably, safely, and productively,” the document says.

The summit with the participation of the leaders of the EU institutions Ursula von der Leyen and Charles Michel with US President Joe Biden was held in Brussels on Tuesday.

The US has previously carried out several waves of sanctions against Russian diplomats. In particular, the administrations of former Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump decided to expel dozens of Russian diplomats and to close the consulates in San Francisco and Seattle, the Russian trade mission in Washington, and some other buildings that are Russian diplomatic property. Moscow has responded with countermeasures, including expelling American diplomats, reducing the number of US diplomats in Russia, and closing the US consulate in St. Petersburg.

In connection with the scandal surrounding the Czech Republic’s accusations of Russia’s involvement in the alleged sabotage of an arms depot in 2014 in Vrbetice, the mutual expulsion of diplomats of the two countries also followed.
