    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.
