The Bulgarian Foreign Ministry has confirmed in an interview to the Bulgarian National Radio that this country has not taken a decision to expel Russian diplomats.

BNR has sought information from the ministry at the backdrop of decisions by the United States, Canada, Ukraine, Albania and 14 EU Member States to expel a total of over 100 Russian diplomats. The decision for expulsion has been taken as a coordinated response to the attack in Britain against former Russian double agent Sergey Skripal and his daughter Julia with a poisonous substance on March 4th.
