  Russia expels Ukraine Consulate General in Saint Petersburg employee

Russia has expelled the employee of the Consulate General of Ukraine in Saint Petersburg in response to the provocation that Ukraine made in May, reports RIA Novosti.

“Back in May 2019, the Special Services of Ukraine made another provocation by declaring an employee of the Consulate General of Russia in Lvov persona non grata for no reason. They didn’t present any evidence,” the press release of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs reads.

The press release states that the Russian party “was forced to declare the employee of the Consulate General of Ukraine in Saint Petersburg persona non grata on the ground of reciprocity” in response to the unfriendly and unmotivated action of Kiev.
