Diplomats were expelled

Bulgaria and the Baltics expelled Russian diplomats:

The brief story is about half way down the page.

Apparently, the diplomats were conducting non diplomatic activities; Slovakia also expelled some Russian diplomats recently.

2. 'Bulgaria is expelling 10 Russian diplomats saying they were carrying out

activities deemed incompatible with their diplomatic status, a move followed up quickly by the Baltic nations of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.

The Bulgarian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on March 18 that it had given the 10 diplomats 72 hours to leave.

The statement did not give a more detailed reason for the expulsions, but since Russia launched its unprovoked invasion of Ukraine, the Russian ambassador in Sofia has repeatedly made contradictory statements about Bulgaria's position on the conflict.

The ministry also did not say who was included on the list of people being expelled.

Soon afterward, Latvia and Estonia said they were both expelling three Russian diplomats, while Lithuania said it had told four Russians that they must leave the country.'>>>

5. A lot of the Russian diplomatic staff are conducting "non-diplomatic" activities everywhere....

Then again, so are our "directors of agricultural exchange" and other interesting folks with odd titles in our embassies. Then again, again, they did invade a peaceful, democratic country and are bombing civilians. Kick the bastards out!!
