Russia says to react if Germany takes action on killing of Chechen ex-rebel

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Moscow will react if Berlin takes new actions against Russia over the killing of a Georgian national in the German capital last year, Russia’s ambassador to Germany said on Thursday, Interfax news agency reported.

Ambassador Sergei Nechayev, who was summoned by the German Foreign Ministry over the case on Thursday, said accusations that Russia had ordered the killing of the man, a former Chechen rebel, were groundless and were not supported by the evidence, Russian news agencies reported.
