Russia will respond “very sensitively” if Germany again decides to reduce the number of Russian diplomats in the country. This statement was made by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, wrote TASS.
“Our response, if implemented, will be inevitable and very sensitive for Berlin,” she said.
According to Zakharova, Germany is hinting at such steps.
The German authorities decided send in bulk Russian diplomats. The Russian Foreign Ministry stated that in this case the FRG was pursuing a policy of destroying the entire array of Russian-German relations. Russia also reduced the limit on the number of employees of German institutions to 350 people.
“It is quite natural that the Russian side, in order to follow the principle of reciprocity, took retaliatory measures,” TASS quotes Zakharova.
Earlier, Germany blocked the accounts of Russian media. Zakharova promised that Russia would make a similar decision.
