EU stays quiet on the biggest spy scandal in decades

 While the Czech Republic is shaken by allegations of Russian involvement in a 2014 attack on a munitions depot, the western members of the EU stay quiet on the issue. The problem is that the same GRU spies may be involved in similar explosions of ammunition depot in Bulgaria and assassination attempts there using the infamous Novichok.

On the other hand, Polish media begins to "connect the dots" on the possible involvement of the same GRU unit in the death of Polish President Lech Kaczynski in the plane crash in Russia. 

We have a major spy scandal developing in the EU and again the "Western" member countries are trying not to get involved and provoke Russia. Poland, Slovakia and the Baltic states, have expelled Russian diplomats out of solidarity with the Czech Republic. EU-wide solidarity like that with Britain after the Salisbury attack, when almost all EU and NATO members expelled Russian diplomats, is unlikely at the moment.

Why? How many more innocent people have to die?
