The Czech Republic is sending all employees of the Russian Embassy in Prague. 18 diplomats must leave the country in 48 hours.
All of them, according to the local special services, are intelligence officers from the SVR and the GRU. They are also suspected of involvement in the explosion at an ammunition depot in the Czech Republic, which occurred in 2014.
As the acting head of the Czech Foreign Ministry Jan Hamacek said today, he made such a decision when Russian diplomats were “clearly identified as officers of the Russian special services.”
In Prague, on Sunday night, ketchup was poured over the walls surrounding the territory of the Russian embassy.
The police in the Czech capital detained seven people and opened an administrative case against them.
The hooligans said the ketchup was supposed to symbolize the blood of two victims of the explosion of an ammunition depot in the village of Vrbetice in the east of the republic in 2014. The local authorities have already cleared the walls of the embassy.
On the eve of the Czech Republic announced the expulsion of 18 employees of the Russian diplomatic mission in Prague, calling them “officers of the Russian special services.” The expulsion of the diplomats was motivated by the new circumstances of the explosion in Vrbetica, in which the officers of the GRU were involved. The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, commenting on the expulsion of the Russians, said that Prague is well aware of “what will follow such tricks.”
Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on International Affairs Vladimir Dzhabarov called the involvement of Russians in the explosion nonsense and promised that Moscow would respond in proportion to Prague.
On April 15, the Polish authorities declared three Russian diplomats persona non grata. In response, the Russian Foreign Ministry decided to expel five employees of the Polish diplomatic mission in Moscow.

In particular, the “Salisberets pilgrims”, known in the world as Boshirov and Petrov, are involved in this operation.
The enemy at the gates: the Czech Republic woke up from Putin’s obsession and sets the trend for the expulsion of the Kremlin rabble After a loud scandal in the Czech Republic related to sabotage at ammunition depots, a variety of “circles in the water” went.

A day passed and the same Babich took a different score, from a different aria. So, today he said that the explosions at military depots should not be regarded as an act of state terrorism directed against the Czech Republic.
