NATO will not issue visa to new Russian diplomats


The North Atlantic alliance (NATO) will not issue visas to Russian diplomats who were supposed to be sent to work for the permanent mission in Brussels, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko said. 

 

“"Yes, indeed, seven people have been declared undesirable. And they (in Brussels) have announced that they will not issue visas to three other employees," Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Alexander Grushko stated at the Valdai Discussion Club’s event, according to Sputnik International.

 

Tensions between Russia and Western countries began to grow after the Salisbury incident, where Sergei Skripal, former Russian intelligence officer and his daughter Yulia were harmed by a nerve agent. The UK accused Russia of orchestrating the attack and expelled 23 Russian diplomats. The move has been supported by more than 25 countries, despite of the fact that Russia has repeatedly denied the accusations and cited the lack of proof.
