Italy says Russian expulsion of its diplomats is ‘unjust’

Italy condemned as “unfounded and unjust” Russia’s decision Monday to expel one of its diplomats, after Rome last month ordered two Russians to leave over a spy scandal.

The foreign ministry expressed its “deep regret” at the decision to expel the deputy naval attache of the Italian embassy in Moscow with 24 hours notice, saying: “We consider the decision unfounded and unjust because it is in retaliation for a legitimate measure taking by the Italian authorities in defense of their own security.”
