Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said that Moscow would respond in kind to Bulgaria’s expulsion of 70 Russian diplomats over Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine, APA's Moscow correspondent reports.

Russia’s ambassador to Bulgaria, an EU and NATO member state and once a close ally of Russia, said last week she would ask Moscow to close its embassy in Sofia over the expulsions.
