Newsline: Sweden expels Russian diplomat, Moscow makes tit-for-tat move

A Swedish diplomat has been expelled from Russia, with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs linking the incident to an official at the Russian embassy in Stockholm being asked to leave. “It happens now and then that diplomats have to leave the country, but it usually does not become public”. As indicated by the Swedish ministry, Moscow’s decision is “unfounded”, and will affect the diplomatic relations between the two countries. The Russian diplomat was expelled because of actions “not in line with the Vienna Convention” which governs diplomatic relations, Tegel said, providing no further details on the nature of the Russian’s actions nor the exact timing of that expulsion. Russian Federation has expelled a Swedish diplomat in what it describes as a response to a similar Swedish move.
