On 25 April, Latvian Charge d’Affaires in Russia D. Rutka was summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry.

The head of the Latvian diplomatic mission was strongly protested against the declaration of two diplomats of the Russian Embassy in Latvia as ‘persona non grata’ without any grounds.

Based on the principle of reciprocity, as well as in accordance with Article 9 of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations of 1961, it is stated that two diplomatic staff members of the Embassy of Latvia are expelled from Russia.

In addition, the Latvian side has been informed that if it continues hostile actions against Russian diplomats, Moscow will inevitably take other steps that will be painful for Riga.
