Bulgaria carries out no expulsions, either

Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov stated that neither Russian diplomats nor technical personnel would be expelled from the country. “In practice, we have shown full solidarity with Great Britain. At the moment, as chairman of the EU Council, we believe that we should maintain a communication channel with Russia”, Borisov said after the recent meeting of the country’s Security Council. On Friday, a meeting of the Security Council of Bulgaria on the “Skripal case” had taken place. This council is headed by the Prime Minister. It also consists of members of the government, heads of the secret services and the deputy of the Bulgarian president. Borisov added that the ambassador of Bulgaria, Bojko Kotsev, who had been withdrawn for consultations last Tuesday, would stay on in Sofia for another week.     •
