The opening of negotiations for Albania, the EP statement is corrected, David Legea reacts immediately and shows what happened: This is an obvious, very important mistake

Albania has declared "non grata" by expelling Russian diplomat Alexey Krivosheev, arguing that it did not implement anti-covid-19 measures, starting with not wearing the mask, defying the authorities' orders.
But today's decision is the culmination of what has been "boiling" for several weeks.
On December 28, the Russian embassy in Tirana, through a Facebook post, offered Prime Minister Edi Rama its "Sputnik V" vaccine if official Tirana were willing to accept it.
But the reaction of Prime Minister Edi Rama was strong, calling it a ridiculous provocation. The head of the Albanian government asked the Russian embassy to apologize for the action.
The response from the Russian diplomatic headquarters in Tirana was not lacking. "We regret that Russia's goodwill, publicly expressed, is interpreted as provocative."
But it seems that on the one hand, Russia offered its vaccines, while on the other hand, according to the Albanian Foreign Ministry, its diplomat violated the anti-covid rules, leading to his deportation.
