Lithuania says Russia is expelling 3 diplomats

VILNIUS (Reuters) – Russia is expelling three Lithuanian diplomats in response to a similar move by the Baltic country in the wake of the poisoning of a former Russian double agent and his daughter in Britain, the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry said on Friday.

“We consider this to be a disproportionate response because Lithuania has fewer diplomats working in Russia than Russia has in Lithuania,” a spokeswoman for the Baltic country’s foreign minister said.
