Foreign Minister Gordan Grlić Radman has confirmed Croatia will expel some Russian diplomats in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and recent reports of atrocities allegedly committed by Russian troops in Bucha and other Ukrainian cities.

Speaking in Brussels on Wednesday, Grlić Radman said Croatia would follow in the footsteps of other EU member states and NATO allies.

“We will do this in solidarity, in response to what is happening, in response to the horrific images from Bucha and other Ukrainian cities,” Grlić Radman said arriving at a NATO foreign ministers meeting.

He said the images reminded him of what happened in Vukovar 30 years ago, when Serb-led forces carried out a relentless siege of the eastern Croatian town.

Allied foreign ministers are meeting in Brussels on Wednesday and Thursday to address Ukraine.

“We need to support Ukraine, sustain our sanctions, and strengthen our defenses and our deterrence,” said NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

Foreign Ministers from Ukraine, Finland, Sweden, and Georgia will take part in the meeting, as well as the EU High Representative.
