Lithuania expels Russia's chargé d'affaires and gives him five days to leave the country

MADRID, 3 Oct. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The Lithuanian Government announced on Monday the expulsion of Russia's chargé d'affaires, Sergei Riabokon, for "actions incompatible" with his diplomatic status and "interference in the internal affairs of the country", for which he has been given five days to leave Lithuanian territory.

The Lithuanian Foreign Ministry has pointed out in a statement on its website that the decision has been communicated to the Russian Embassy in Vilnius and has further conveyed its protest over Moscow’s decision to annex to Russia the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Lugansk and the Jershon and Zaporiyia regions.

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on Friday the annexation of these Ukrainian territories, a decision not recognized internationally, as a result of the referendums held days before in these areas of Ukraine, partially controlled by Russian troops after the invasion triggered on 24 February.
