MADRID, November 27 (.) –

The spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zajarova, has denounced that “hostile” countries, mainly from the European Union, have minimized the Russian diplomatic presence to a minimum, which she has described as “absurd”.

“We only have one or two diplomats in some countries,” Zakharova said, recalling that Moscow “has never” started the problem by breaking relations with these countries, as she said on Saturday night on the national television channel and has collected the TASS news agency.

The Russian government announced the expulsion of 34 French diplomats in response to the “provocative and unjustified” decision by Paris to declare 41 Russians ‘persona non grata’ in response to the invasion of Ukraine.

For its part, Germany declared 40 Russian diplomats persona non grata in April and expelled them from the country for “working every day” against the “cohesion” of society, according to German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock.

These two examples show that diplomatic representation in Russia has been reduced in recent months as a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which has been condemned by the European Union and by part of the international community.
