Swedish diplomat expelled from Moscow: Swedish foreign ministry

AFP , Monday 3 Aug 2015

A Swedish diplomat has been expelled from Moscow in a tit-for-tat move after the Scandinavian country recently kicked out a Russian diplomat, Sweden's foreign ministry said on Monday.

"Russian authorities have informed us that a diplomat at the Swedish embassy has to leave the country ... Russia has made it clear it considers this to be a response to the Swedish decision to expel a Russian diplomat," foreign ministry spokesman Johan Tegel told AFP.
