«The Ambassador has been summoned and should be received in the afternoon by the Secretary General of the European Commission and the European External Action Service. We will send him a firm condemnation and a rejection of this decision.», Declared the spokesperson of the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell. “The EU reserves the right to take appropriate action in response to the decision of the Russian authorities», Warned on Friday the presidents of the three EU institutions (Parliament, Commission and Council, the institution representing the States).

The Union condemns this purely political and legal basis decision, such is the report of this convening by the Europeans. They also expressed their dissatisfaction with the evictions of diplomats and their concern about the Russian decision to establish a "unfriendly State" list.

EU Foreign Ministers will look at the Russian file in a week but for now the 27 have still failed to defuse tensions to the cool warlings that accumulate with Russia. Their requests for liberation from Alexei Navalny then their sanctions have only begged hostility and reprisals of the Kremlin, a vicious circle that nobody here sees the end.
