Russia summons Greek ambassador over expulsion of its diplomats

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s foreign ministry said on Friday that it had summoned the Greek ambassador to Moscow to protest against the expulsion of two Russian diplomats by Athens.

“Washington... is behind the anti-Russian decision of the government of Greece,” the foreign ministry said in a statement on Friday.

Greece said it had expelled two Russian diplomats for trying to bribe officials and foment demonstrations to thwart a deal to allow Macedonia to join NATO.
