The Czech Ambassador to Russia Vitezslav Pivonka said that he expects an explanation from Russia about how the country’s inclusion in the list of unfriendly kingdoms will affect the work of the embassy.
Recall that the Russian government on May 14 made a list of foreign kingdoms “committing unfriendly actions” in the relationship of the Russian Federation. Only two countries flew there – the USA and the Czech Republic. The final, in turn, called Russia’s decision a step towards escalation.
At the same time, according to the document, the embassies of the localities included in the list cannot employ citizens of Russia and third localities for work.
“We will wait for the Russian reaction. They should, in fact, explain to us that in the utilitarian activities of the embassy and the general consulates in the future, this should mean “, – said Pivonka in an interview with Czech Radio.
