He emphasized that the Russian reaction was disproportionate compared to the measures our country had announced against certain Russian diplomats, who had been declared undesirable, as they had proven to have demonstrated action inconsistent with their diplomatic status, in accordance with the provisions of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations of 1961 and the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations of 1963.

On the contrary, the expulsions of the Greek diplomats have no justification, other than acting as disproportionate retaliation. It was also underlined that the aforementioned Greek diplomats in no way violated the Vienna Conventions.
