Russia calls German expulsion of diplomats 'unfriendly'

Germany's decision to expel two Russian diplomats from Berlin is "unfriendly" and "ungrounded," Russian Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday. Moscow added that Berlin's "politicized approach towards investigative procedures" is not acceptable.

The ministry added that Russia will respond reciprocally to the expulsion of its diplomatic personnel.

Earlier, Germany said it declared two Russian embassy workers in Berlin personae non gratae after they declined to cooperate in the investigation into the murder of ethinic Chechen Georgian national Zelimkhan Khanogoshvili.
