Russia is expelling four Swedish diplomats, according to Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde.
On Tuesday, she tweeted: “Today, Russia has decided to expel four Swedish diplomats. The Russian action is unmotivated and disproportionate. By expelling Western diplomats, Russia is fueling its international isolation. Sweden will respond appropriately to Russia’s unwarranted action.”
The expulsions are an answer to Sweden’s earlier decision to expel three Russian diplomats due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, reports news agency TT.
