Russia brought Greece into its "black list"

Five more European countries, including Greece, were added by Russia to the list of “unfriendly countries”, which limited recruitment to their diplomatic missions.

According to a posting on the Russian government website, the expanded list of “unfriendly countries” that “commit hostile acts against Russian diplomatic and consular missions abroad” now includes, in addition to Greece, Denmark, Croatia, Slovenia and Slovakia.

The decree, signed this morning by Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, determines the number of employees that the embassies and consulates of these countries can hire in Russia. Thus, the limit for Greece is 34 people, for Denmark – 20 and Slovakia – 16, and Slovenia and Croatia can no longer hire local staff in their diplomatic missions and consular offices.

Lavrov announced restrictions on the entry of citizens from “unfriendly countries.”

The Chairman of the Duma threatened other “unfriendly” countries to stop the supply of resources.
“The list approved by the government is not final and, given the ongoing hostile actions of foreign states against Russian delegations abroad, may be further expanded,” the Russian government said in a statement, according to the Greek news outlet.

In May last year, similar restrictions were imposed on the embassies of the United States and the Czech Republic, and the Russian list included a total of 48 countries, including all member countries EUAustralia, Canada, UK and New Zealand.
