The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has removed the accreditation of eight members of the Russian mission, naming them “undeclared Russian intelligence officers.” At the approval of all 30 members, the alliance also reduced the number of positions for Russia to 10, from 20, which included two vacant positions.
NATO said it had stripped eight members of the Russian mission to the Alliance of their accreditation, calling them “undeclared Russian intelligence officers,” meaning spies.
NATO has decided to halve the size of Russia’s mission to the alliance in response to suspected malign Russian activities, including killings & espionage. 8 diplomats, thought to be undeclared intelligence officers, will be asked to leave & 2 other positions scrapped.
What people are saying?
Deborah Haynes The two positions that have been scrapped are currently vacant. The eight Russian diplomats who are losing their accreditation are expected to leave Brussels by the end of the month. The only other time NATO has taken such a step was after Salisbury spy poisonings.
Kalcid I am just reading a book about PMV, about how idiotic decisions, lack of dialogue and mutual understanding led to the death of tens of millions.
