Russia may partially evacuate diplomats from Ukraine

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after the completion of negotiations with his British counterpart Liz Truss that Vladimir Zelensky is used by the West “as a tool to bring Russia out of balance” and his own opinion is not taken into account. The minister said that Russia was already thinking, “maybe the Anglo-Saxons are preparing something, since they are taking embassy employees out of Ukraine.” Because of this, the Russian Federation may recommend that non-essential personnel of the diplomatic mission in Ukraine leave the country for a while.

“We also looked at their actions and, probably, we will also advise non-essential personnel of our diplomatic institutions to go home for a while,” Mr. Lavrov said.

On February 10, near the border with Ukraine, the Russian-Belarusian exercises “Allied Resolve-2022” started. Against the background of the crisis over Ukraine, the United States and its allies see the upcoming exercises as a demonstration of Russia’s aggressive intentions and a direct threat of an invasion of Ukraine from the north.
