The embassy of the Russian Federation in Bulgaria has been notified with a note about the decision to declare two Russian diplomats as persona non grata, as the two Russian citizens have 72 hours to leave Bulgaria, Bulgaria's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced.
The reason for the decision is that Bulgaria's foreign ministry received a letter from the Bulgarian prosecutor's office with a decree suspending pre-trial proceedings against the two diplomats who have collected information constituting a state secret for the purpose of revealing it to a foreign state. The pre-trial proceedings against the Russian citizens have been suspended because they have diplomatic immunity, BNR reports.
