Pushkov demanded to expel an employee of the Norwegian consulate from Russia

Norwegian consular officer Elisabeth Ellingsen, who has publicly declared her hatred of Russians, should be sent home, a senior Russian official said.

“The answer should not be politically correct: she should be immediately expelled from Russia and, at a minimum, Oslo should be warned that any racist attack on Russian citizens will directly affect the work of the Norwegian diplomatic departments in our country,” Senator Alexei Pushkov wrote on Telegram.

In his opinion, Ellingsen “expressed the opinion of many of her colleagues – taking into account the anti-Russian hysteria that is now characteristic of many Western countries.”

On Saturday, a video from a Russian hotel surfaced online showing Ellingsen yelling at a hotel employee using obscene language and saying he hates Russians. The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, said that Moscow is considering a response to the behavior of an employee of the Norwegian consulate.
