MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Russian Foreign Ministry summoned Norway’s ambassador on Monday to protest against the arrest of a Russian citizen at Oslo airport on suspicion of spying.
“We demanded ... the immediate lifting of the absurd charges, and his release,” the ministry said in a statement.
The ministry gave the name of the arrested man as M.A. Bochkaryov.
