German authorities expel two Russian diplomats in connection with Zelimkhan Khangoshvili’s murder case. According to Russian media, two employees of the Russian embassy declared persona non grata.
German Foreign Ministry says Berlin reserves the right to take new measures if Moscow does not cooperate with the investigation on the murder case of Georgian citizen.
Prior to that, it was reported that Angela Merkel’s government may impose diplomatic or different types of sanctions against Russia if the evidence reveals that Moscow has a connection with this murder case.
Zelimkhan Khangoshvili, aged 40, was killed in Berlin. Within following days German police arrested a 49-year-old Russian citizen.
As the German press reported, Russian special services may have been behind the murder.
