"The reaction of the Russians was unexpectedly strong": the work of the Czech embassy in Moscow is paralyzed


On Saturday, April 17, Czech Prime Minister Andrei Babis announced the expulsion from Prague of 18 Russian diplomatic officials accused by the Czech authorities of working for the special services, as well as complicity in the explosion of an arms depot in the village of Vrbetica in 2014. The Czech authorities also put Russian citizens Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov on the wanted list. Russia did not hesitate with an adequate response.


The Kremlin called the actions of the Czech Republic unacceptable and hostile, expressing the idea that the Americans are behind the Czechs, who are directing the actions of the Czech side in a direction favorable to Washington. As a response from the Russian Federation and by order of the Russian Foreign Ministry, 20 Czech diplomats are to leave Moscow in turn.

Chekhov, however, was surprised by the reaction of the Russians to their unfriendly diplomatic demarche. On Monday, April 19, First Deputy Prime Minister and Acting Czech Foreign Minister Jan Hamacek expressed the opinion that Russia's response was very strong and unexpected

The reaction of the Russian side (to the expulsion of diplomats) turned out to be stronger than we expected. More Czech diplomats were sent

- he stressed, noting his intention to prepare a further action plan for Andriy Babish.


At the same time, Hamacek announced the actual paralysis of the work of the Czech embassy in Moscow due to the actions of Russia. According to him, the measures of the Russian Foreign Ministry were "a blow to the embassy" - the expulsion of 20 diplomats with the available three dozen employees led to the fact that at the moment only the consular department of the Czech diplomatic mission in the Russian capital is functioning.

    Well, yes, a typical exclamation - "And what about us?"
    Only Russia is not finalizing:

    “The export of Czech foodstuffs to Russia is growing despite the embargo,” says the Czech agrarian diplomat Nikola Grushkov.

    - Well, yes, poor Czechs, how are they now without work? I think these 20 diplomats were not very upset.

    Czech Prime Minister Andrei Babis said that Prague will declassify data on an explosion at an ammunition depot in Vrbetica in 2014, in which Russian intelligence officers are suspected of being involved

    19 April 2021, 13: 43
    The Czech authorities do not plan to provide the Russian side with all the information on the investigation of the explosions at the ammunition depots in 2014 in the village of Vrbetice, said First Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister of the Czech Republic Jan Hamacek, acting foreign minister.

    Here the graters have already gone .. the prime minister says to the initiator, cut the details. And he yells, I can't, the Russians will know! laughing

      For fun from life.
      In 1978 a guy from a Kiev university worked as a Consul in the NRC. There were many Patriotoks, mostly married to Congolese from the Odessa school, some of them to very high-ranking leaders. We hung out in the embassy club, and the films there were always new earlier than in the Soviet Union. Children, like local ones, were worn on the hip. Well, when problems arose or visas were made to the locals, this guy did everything with one nose.

    All this will end when Russia goes on the offensive, and does not constantly defend.
