the Story of expelled from Prague by Russian diplomats is devoid of any logic. This opinion was expressed by Deputy head of Rossotrudnichestvo, the Russian Federation Mikhail Bryukhanov in a live TV channel “Russia-1”.
on the Eve of the Czech government expelled the staff of Rossotrudnichestvo Andrey Konchakova and Igor Rybakov because of the alleged spy scandal. According to the version of the Czech side, diplomats involved in the poisoning of the Czech politicians. In the Russian Embassy said on unsubstantiated accusations and trumped-up provocations.
According to Bryukhanov, statements of political representatives and authorities of the Czech Republic contradict each other. The Deputy Prime Minister and interior Minister Jan hamáček said that to expel the diplomat from the country is possible only with substantial evidence. Now he acknowledged that the Czech intelligence services have evidence of importation of the poison from Russia, said the head of Rossotrudnichestvo.
“then we impose that someone wrote some denunciations of his head in the Czech secret services. If someone writes denunciations, they should be happy. Why did you send — read, study, and analyze” — said Bryukhanov.
In his opinion, the actions of the Czech side “very strange”. He believes that this version of the denunciation came from the Czech authorities in April when the newspaper Respekt published an article about the arrival to the Czech Republic from Russia a man with the diplomatic passport that had the poison ricin.
“even then, the Czech authorities have attended to this story, an information leakage of the secret services became public and accessible. To publish a scandalous history of the Czechs had planned,” he said.
“All developed spontaneously, and scandalously in favor of the interests of third parties. So plan to call these actions very difficult,” concluded Bryukhanov.
