Ex-Foreign Minister of Austria leaves the country due to death threats

Former Austrian Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl left the country due to death threats, the Washington Post writes, citing statements by the politician herself.

"In messages addressed to a reporter for the Washington Post, Kneissl stated that she was not giving interviews and had emigrated from Austria," says the publication.

Earlier, the European Parliament adopted a resolution calling on former European politicians to leave their positions in Russian companies, while allowing them to be included in the EU sanctions lists. At the same time, the EP resolutions on foreign policy issues are not binding, but other institutions should listen to the opinion of MEPs.

Kneissl left the board of directors of Rosneft on May 20, in which she held the position of an independent director. A similar decision was made by Gerhard Schroeder and Matthias Warnig. They served as chair and vice chair.
