BERLIN: Germany summoned Russia’s ambassador and expelled two members of its embassy staff after a court ruled on Wednesday that Moscow had ordered the 2019 Berlin murder of a Georgian citizen, foreign minister Annalena Baerbock said.
Baerbock said the murder was a serious violation of German law and sovereignty and would seriously burden Russian-German relations.
“We therefore summoned the Russian ambassador,” she said. “We told him that two members of the embassy staff would be declared persona non grata.”
