Moscow: Russia has expelled a number of Polish diplomats accusing them of activities "incompatible with their status" in response to expulsions of Russian diplomats by Warsaw, the foreign ministry said on Monday.

"The Polish authorities indeed took such an unfriendly and absolutely groundless step. The Russian side took appropriate measures and a number of Polish diplomats have already left the territory of our country for activities incompatible with their status," the ministry said in a statement, using diplomatic language that generally refers to espionage, without giving any more details.
