Comment by the Information and Press Department on the declaration of a Swedish diplomat persona non grata in the Russian Federation


  • en-GB1 ru-RU1

The Russian Foreign Ministry confirms that an employee of the Swedish Embassy in Moscow has recently been named persona non grata. This move came as a reaction to unfriendly treatment of a Russian diplomat in Stockholm by the Swedish authorities.

We are surprised that the Swedish party, having taken this unfriendly step, is now talking about a negative impact of the incident on Russian-Swedish relations. The responsibility for the consequences of this provocation lies with Stockholm.
