Newsline: Russia expels Ukrainian diplomat

Moscow has expelled an Ukrainian diplomat in retaliation for Kiev’s expulsion of a Russian diplomat, RIA news agency on Tuesday quoted a source at the Russian foreign ministry as saying. It gave no further details. Ties between Moscow and Kiev hit rock bottom over Russia’s annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula in March, 2014. Unrest then started in Ukraine’s Russian-speaking east and Kiev and the West accuse Moscow of driving a separatist rebellion there. Moscow denies that.
