Russia, Greece spat and diplomatic tit-for-tat

Greece is reportedly unhappy with Russia’s efforts to sink the name deal struck with Greece’s neighbour, which will allow it to be named North Macedonia.

    Greece is allegedly about to expel two Russian diplomats for interfering in its internal affairs.

    Athens is accusing Moscow of trying to undermine a recent deal over the name of its neighbour, the soon-to-be North Macedonia.

    Russian news agencies have said Russia will respond in kind.

    The incident - on the first day of the NATO summit - has raised some diplomatic eyebrows, since Greece is traditionally the alliance’s most pro-Russian member.
