Today, August 14, 22 Russian diplomats flew out of the Moldovan capital Chisinau as relations between the two countries deteriorate.


Moldovan officials said that the reduction of the Russian embassy staff from 80 to 25 people will allow them to establish parity with the Moldovan embassy in Moscow.

The plane with 22 embassy staff took off from Chisinau airport to the Russian city of Sochi, from where it will continue to Moscow.

23 technical support staff and their families also expressed a desire to travel with the diplomats.
