Estonia expels 2 Russian diplomats, Moscow vows to retaliate

Recommended Posts

Two senior Russian diplomats have been ordered to leave Estonia, the Russian embassy and Estonian Foreign Ministry have confirmed to RT, adding that they cannot give any further comment.

Russia's consul general in Narva, Dmitry Kazyonnov, and consul Andrey Surgaev were handed a note to leave the Baltic country on Friday.

The Russian Foreign Ministry told RT it considers the expulsion of the diplomats "yet another unfriendly and absolutely groundless act." Such actions from Tallinn "will not be left unanswered," it added.

Among the  recent high-profile cases of Russian diplomats being expelled was the decision by the former Obama administration in the US, which ordered 35 Russian officials out of the country over hacking allegations in December last year.

Washington described the diplomats as "intelligence operatives," while Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the case was "something that was never seen in the diplomatic affairs of the world for decades."
