Prague’s decision to expel 18 Russian diplomats may indicate a possible intention of the Czech authorities to close the country’s embassy in Moscow. This was told by a Russian diplomatic source.
Earlier it became known that the Czech Republic is expelling 18 Russian diplomats. They are suspected of working for the Russian special services. The special services themselves are suspected of involvement in the explosion at an ammunition depot in Vrbetica in 2014.
Against this background, the Czech police announced the wanted list of Russian citizens Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov. These are the same Russians whom the British authorities suspect of the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal. At the same time, the Czech police have not yet been able to confirm the connection between the search for the Russians and the explosion in Vrbetica.
