Georgia expelling Russian diplomat over UK nerve agent attack
Georgia has joined other countries in a move to expel Russian diplomats and requests a member of the staff of the Russian Federation Interests Section at the Embassy of Switzerland in Tbilisi to leave the country within seven days.
"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemns the use of chemical weapons on the territory of the United Kingdom that caused grave human suffering of three individuals and posed a serious threat to the life and health of others. This represents a serious challenge to common security," the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia said in a statement.
"The Ministry expresses solidarity with the United Kingdom, shares the position of the United Kingdom as well as of international community on this matter and declares a member of the staff of the Russian Federation Interests Section at the Embassy of Switzerland in Tbilisi persona non grata, who should leave Georgia within seven days," reads the report.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the Ukrainian authorities have expelled 13 Russian diplomats, while 66 are still working in Ukraine.
