(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 31 – Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio said
Wednesday that Italy has expelled two Russians after an Italian
Navy officer was caught while allegedly handing over classified
documents to a Russian military official.
    The foreign ministry summoned the Russian ambassador to Rome in
relation to the case earlier on Wednesday.
    “When the Russian ambassador to Italy was summoned to the
foreign ministry, we expressed the Italian government’s resolute
protest and gave notice of the immediate expulsion of the two
Russian officials involved in this extremely serious affair,” Di Maio said via Facebook.
    “I thank the intelligence service and all the State bodies that
work for the security of our country every day”. (ANSA).
