''A temperature drop'', Pm Rama responds to the relations with Russia

Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama considered the relations between Albania and Russia as a "temperature drop", as the two countries mutually expelled the secretaries of their embassies, first in Tirana and then in Moscow. "Don't worry! There's just a drop in temperature! No problem!" he answered the question whether the relationship with Russia is endangered.
At the beginning of the year, official Tirana expelled a Russian diplomat, because according to her she violated the anti-cash rules. In response, the Russian Foreign Ministry expelled the first secretary of the Albanian embassy in Moscow, accompanied by a strong reaction. Earlier, the two countries had exchanged tense statements. An invitation from the Russian embassy in Tirana for Albania to benefit from the distribution of Russian vaccines to fight the coronavirus, Prime Minister Rama responded with rejection, calling it a "ridiculous provocation".
