Czech radio has revealed details of the detention of a Russian diplomat in říčany. He was accused of illegally purchasing ammunition, including ammo for the sniper rifle.
In connection with diplomatic immunity, the court issued a warrant for the arrest of the Russian citizen and he was released. Soon he had to leave the Czech Republic. It is known that the employee of the diplomatic mission he served in the military atasate, but why he was buying ammunition, never found.
June 5, the Czech foreign Ministry has announced two employees of the Russian diplomatic mission in Czech Republic persona non grata. Ten days later, Russia took retaliatory measures.
The decision on expulsion of Embassy staff in Prague could be related to the April incident. Then the security services of the Czech Republic suspected the employee of “Rossotrudnichestvo” in the attempt to organize the assassination of the mayor of Prague and two other politicians who take a critical stance towards Russia.
