Germany, Poland and Sweden on Monday each expelled a Russian diplomat, days after Moscow kicked out diplomats from the three EU countries for attending a protest in support of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny.

Ann Linde, Sweden’s foreign minister, said on Twitter that “a person from the Russian embassy is asked to leave Sweden. This is a clear response to the unacceptable decision to expel a Swedish diplomat who was only performing his duties.”

On Friday, French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel condemned Russia’s decision to expel the three EU diplomats.
