The Austrian Ministry of Overseas Affairs declared on Wednesday two Russian diplomats as personae non gratae, requiring them to depart Austria by March 19. The ministry didn’t present any particulars as to why the 2 diplomats have been requested to depart Austria.

In an official assertion, the ministry accused the 2 diplomats of participating in “actions which can be incompatible with their diplomatic standing.” Referring to Article 9 of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, the ministry declared the 2 people as personae non gratae, which suggests Russia should now both recall the people or terminate their capabilities as diplomats.

Since 2020, Austria has expelled 11 Russian diplomats. Final yr, Austria additionally revoked the diplomatic standing of 4 Russians for comparable causes. The Directory of Diplomatic Missions presently lists 56 people as diplomats to Austria from Russia.

In a Telegram announcement, the Russian Embassy mentioned they’re outraged by the choice. In response to the embassy, the choice was unsupported by proof and a politically motivated transfer, which the embassy categorically rejects.
