'Ukraine detains, expels Russian military attaché over spying allegations' [Dimtry Babich @ PressTV]

Ukraine has detained and expelled a Russian military-naval attaché over spying allegations.

Ukraine's foreign ministry says the unnamed diplomat from Moscow's embassy in Kiev was detained on Wednesday. The ministry later ordered the expulsion of the official over what it termed "intelligence activities incompatible with diplomatic status". Ukraine holds Russia responsible for the fall of several government buildings in its eastern cities into the hands of pro-Russia protesters. Moscow vehemently denies having a role in the developments. The Kremlin says it reserves the right to intervene to protect ethnic Russians in Ukraine.
