A senior Romanian diplomat is being held by Russia's Federal Security Service and has been ordered to leave the country in 48 hours. The FSB says he was allegedly caught trying to obtain military intelligence.
The Russians say Gabriel Grecu was employed by the intelligence services of Romania and was working undercover as the first secretary of the political department of the embassy in Moscow. Russia's Foreign Ministry lodged a protest to Romania on Grecu' s activities saying they are incompatible with his diplomatic status. Romania's foreign ministry declined immediate comment.
