Newsline: Norway orders expulsion of Russian envoys

On Wednesday, Norway announced the expulsion of three Russian diplomats, saying the individuals conducted activities that were incompatible with their diplomatic status. “It is not by chance that these expulsions take place now,” Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs Anniken Huitfeldt said in a statement. “They come at a time when the world is shocked by reports of Russian forces’ crimes against civilians, in particular in the town of Bucha outside Kyiv. In this situation we pay particular attention to unwanted Russian activities in Norway,” she said.
