Bulgaria won't expel Russian diplomats over spy poisoning - PM

Emerging from a meeting of the Security Council in which the Bulgarian Ambassador to Russia Boyko Kotzev took part, Prime Minister Boyko Borissov said that the Bulgarian government would not expel Russian diplomats or technical persons and was looking forward to more proof about the Skripal attack.

"We must do the same with Russian Federation".

He said Bulgaria has already shown its solidarity with Britain by supporting European Council and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation decisions on the Skripal case, and by summoning its ambassador to Moscow for consultations.

"At this stage, we do not think we should expel Russian diplomats and officials".

Several EU countries, including Greece, Cyprus, Portugal, Slovenia and Austria, however, have not joined the coordinated action.

Calls for Bulgaira to to make the move have faced strong opposition from both the country's coalition government and other political parties in parliament who are keen to pursue healthy ties with Russian Federation. Many Bulgarians feel a strong cultural affinity for Russian Federation, with which they share the Cyrillic script and orthodox Christianity.

While voicing support for Britain, Bulgaria on Friday said that for now it has no plans to expel Russian diplomats over the poisoning of an ex-Russian spy in England.

Over the past few days, over 140 Russian diplomats have been ordered to leave by over 20 European Union member states and other countries - including the United States and Canada - in solidarity with the United Kingdom, which ordered the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomatic workers over the poisoning of former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal in the UK city of Salisbury.
