Moscow (The Times Groupe)- Russia declared two Finnish diplomats persona non grata in retaliation on Tuesday.

The Russian Foreign Ministry summoned Finland’s Ambassador Antti Helantera and handed him a note ordering the diplomats to leave Moscow.

In a statement, the ministry said it strongly condemned Finland’s earlier “groundless expulsion” of Russian diplomats “as part of the EU’s anti-Russian sanctions campaign.”

The statement condemned Finland’s “confrontational” stance toward Russia, especially its supply of weapons to Ukraine and the efforts of Ukrainian nationalists to cover up crimes against civilians in Donbas and Ukraine.”
