The plane with Russian diplomats expelled from the Czech Republic flew to Moscow. The broadcast from the Vaclav Havel Airport in Prague was broadcast by Czech Television.
A total of 62 people flew from the Czech Republic, including 28 children.
We will remind, the Czech authorities announced suspicions of the involvement of Russian special services in the explosion at an ammunition depot in Vrbetica in 2014. The expulsion from the country of 18 Russian diplomats was announced.
Moscow, in turn, declared 20 employees of the Czech embassy persona non grata. The Russian Foreign Ministry denied the accusations of the Czech Republic and called them absurd and unfounded. The official representative of the department, Maria Zakharova, stressed that Prague is trying to hide its internal problems by its actions.
Note that the ex-president of the Czech Republic Vaclav Klaus criticized the actions of the current authorities for the scandal with Russia.
Meanwhile, the Czech Foreign Ministry did not rule out the introduction of new measures against Russia.
