Estonia will refuse a visa to a Russian diplomat in response to the expulsion of its diplomat from Russia. About it reported at the press service of the Estonian Foreign Ministry.
“In this case, the Foreign Ministry wants to put an end to the current situation and hopes that the Russian Federation will refrain from further developing it, despite its asymmetric reaction. Estonia is interested in good and constructive relations with all its neighbors, but this requires a similar will from Russia, ”Tallinn said in a statement.
Recall that at the beginning of July, Russia expelled the consul of the Estonian Consulate General in St. Petersburg, Marta Lyatte, from the country. On July 6, the FSB announced his arrest. According to the service, the Estonian consul was detained while receiving classified information from a Russian.
Lyatte was declared persona non grata and was given 48 hours to leave the country. According to the Estonian Foreign Ministry, the detention of the consul was a provocation against the diplomatic representative of Estonia, and the accusations are groundless. According to the department, Lyatte was at a working meeting at the St. Petersburg Polytechnic University.
