“The Russian Embassy in Macedonia reacted through the social media network Twitter after the Macedonian MFA handed over the decision to expel a Russian diplomat from the country this afternoon.

‘The Macedonian government expelled a Russian diplomat from Skopje, an extremely hostile, unjustified step that has no precedent in Russian-Macedonian relations. The responsibility for the consequences of this move will be borne entirely by the Macedonian side,’ the statement issued by the Russian embassy on its official Twitter message said.” (translated from Makfax)
