North Macedonia formally notified Moscow on Friday that it does not agree to the establishment of an honorary Russian consul.

In a statement, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said North Macedonia’s decision to withdraw its consent to the establishment of Russia’s post of honorary consul was politically motivated.

“The North Macedonian authorities have formally given notice of their withdrawal of their consent to establish an honorary consulate of Russia in the city of Bitola (North Macedonia). No motives for this step have been said. It has been formulated for the absence of any,” the ministry said in a statement.

Skopje has sacrificed the system of awarding honorary consuls to Western anti-Russian rhetoric, and Russia will react, the ministry added.
