MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia has determined to “optimise” its diplomatic workers numbers in Ukraine, fearing “provocations” by Kyiv or different celebration, a spokeswoman for the Russian overseas ministry stated on Saturday.
Maria Zakharova didn’t say whether or not that meant a discount in workers numbers however stated the embassy and consulates in Ukraine continued to carry out their key features.
Tensions have been mounting for weeks attributable to a Russian army buildup and surge of army exercise that has fuelled fears that Russia may assault Ukraine. Russia denies any such plans.
