Austria said on Monday it is expelling a Russian diplomat for violating envoy privileges, causing Russia to expel an Austrian diplomat in response. The Austrian Foreign Ministry said the Russian envoy is being ordered to leave as his behaviour was not compatible with the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, the Austria Press Agency reported. No further details on the reasons for the expulsion were given. Austria's Kronen Zeitung newspaper reported the Russian diplomat was allegedly involved in economic espionage at a technology firm for years and was aided by an Austrian citizen.

Given that the Russian Federation is led by a former KGB operative, nobody will be surprised that he has riddled European countries with spies of all sorts.

Austria is a fine country. Good on Austria. Russia deserves the rebuke.
 
Austria has not been part of Germany since 1945 when it changed its name from the German gau of Alpen-und Donau-Reichsgaue to the sovereign country of Österreich. As the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel is not expected to comment on this incident.

whats about other similar "incidents" ?
