The Foreign Ministry spokeswoman noted that the story of the expulsion of Russian diplomats from the FRG, Sweden and Poland is not unprecedented, “roughly repeating what we have already seen and passed.” “It lasts for years, decades, centuries. People, I mean our collective West, defend their own interests. they embark on an aggressive policy, “the diplomat added.
