The Embassy of the Russian Federation in the Republic of Macedonia reacted fiercely in its official Twitter profile, calling the decision to expel a Russian diplomat as “provocation” and “unprecedented act” in the Macedonian-Russian relations.
“The Government of the Republic of Macedonia has decided to expel a Russian diplomat. Full responsibility for the consequences of this provocation and an extremely unfriendly act of unprecedented Russian-Macedonian relations will be borne by the Macedonian side, “reads the reaction of the Russian embassy on Twitter.
The request for Macedonia to expel a Russian diplomat came at the behest of the US Ambassador in the country Jess Baily is the unofficial Governor of Macedonia.
Croatia was coerced doing precisely the same thing a moment ago, they too expelled 1 Russian diplomat. But not every nation is a lapdog. Austria from the get-go said it would not follow US and British orders.
The Macedonian criminal government junta issued a press release in which it states:
@VladaMK донесе одлука да протера руски дипломат. Целосна одговорност за последиците од оваа провокација и исклучително непријателски чин без преседан во руско-македонските односи ќе ја носи македонската страна pic.twitter.com/gPThL2NWkZ
