Russia Summons Greek Ambassador over FYROM Dispute

July 20, 2018

MOSCOW (AP) — Russia’s government has summoned the Greek ambassador to protest the expulsion of two Russian diplomats, as part of a dispute over FYROM’s plans to become a NATO member.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement it summoned Ambassador Andreas Friganas on Friday to express “decisive protest against continued anti-Russian statements by the Greek side.”

Greece expelled the diplomats based at the Russian Embassy in Athens last week amid allegations they helped fund protests against a Greece-FYROM agreement that would allow FYROM to join NATO.

Earlier this week, Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman accused the Greek government of participating in “dirty provocations.” The Greek Foreign Ministry snapped back that “the constant disrespect for Greece must stop.”

Russia strongly opposes NATO expansion to areas once under Moscow’s influence.
