A senior official of the Embassy of Sweden in the Russian Federation was declared persona non grata.

BBC informs citing the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Sweden Johan Tegel, Censor.NET reports.

The name and position of the expelled diplomat has not been specified.

"As we see it, Russia considers this move a response to the fact that the employee of the Russian embassy in Stockholm was recently asked to leave Sweden. This measure was taken because that person turned out to be engaged in activities incompatible with the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic relations," Tegel said.

It is noted that the Swedish security agencies have earlier stated that at least one third of the Russian diplomats in Sweden were intelligence officers.
