Earlier today, Russia added Albania to its ‘enemy list’, along with Montenegro and North Macedonia. It accuses the three countries of actions against the Kremlin.
The list also includes the EU, the United States, as well as, Britain, Canada, Australia, Japan, Switzerland and New Zealand.
On February 27, Albania joined the EU in imposing sanctions against Russia for its invasion of Ukraine. The assets of 654 individuals will be frozen and Russian aircrafts are banned from entering Albanian airspace.
