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

August 4, 2015

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.
