MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia expelled a Slovenian diplomat in a tit-for-tat retaliatory move after Ljubljana ordered a Russian diplomat to leave, Russia’s foreign ministry said on Friday.

In a statement, the ministry said it had also told Slovenia’s top envoy that Ljubljana was responsible for what it called the “destruction of bilateral relations” between the two countries.
