The European Union is concerned about the gross violation of international law and the sovereignty of the Czech Republic, as well as the subsequent threats of the Russian Federation against it
The European Union takes very seriously the exposure of Russian GRU officers as the perpetrators of the explosions at the ammunition depots in the Czech Vrbetice and will support the Czech Republic in bringing those responsible to justice.
This is stated in the statement of the Council of the European Union.
“The EU is deeply concerned about the gross violation of international law and the sovereignty of the Czech Republic, as well as any such actions directed against any other EU member State,” the document says.
The European Union also condemned Russia’s disproportionate reaction and subsequent threats against the Czech Republic.
“The subversive actions of the Russian special services against the interests and security of the EU and its member states will continue to be met with the strongest determination, including at the level of the European Union, depending on the circumstances,” the EU Council says.
They also expressed full solidarity with the Czech Republic and supported its recent actions against Russian diplomats, promising to support it in the future.
Recall that on April 17, the Czech authorities announced the expulsion from Prague of 18 employees of the Russian embassy, who were identified as agents of the Russian special services under diplomatic cover, in response, Russia expelled 20 Czech diplomats from the country.
