Ambassador of Ukraine in Kazakhstan Petr Vrublevsky, at the request of the Kazakh authorities, left the republic. This was announced on Thursday to a TASS correspondent by a source familiar with the situation.
“The Ukrainian ambassador-Bandera, who called for “killing Russians,” left Kazakhstan at the request of the Kazakh authorities. He took off on a morning Polish airline flight to Warsaw,” he said.
In turn, the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan, Aibek Smadiyarov, told a TASS correspondent that Vrublevsky was on vacation.
The press service of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation previously informed that they would give a legal assessment of the words of the Ukrainian diplomat.
On August 23, Deputy Minister Yermukhambet Konuspayev met with Vrublevsky at the Kazakh Foreign Ministry, during which a protest was expressed to the ambassador in connection with his statements. The Foreign Ministry also noted that the Kazakh side expressed a position on the unacceptability and incompatibility of such statements with the activities of the ambassador of a foreign state.
