Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania have expelled a total of 10 Russian diplomats, the foreign ministries of the three Baltic countries said Friday.

Lithuania expelled four diplomats, while Latvia and Estonia expelled three each.

The diplomats were expelled in a coordinated action “in connection with activities contrary to their diplomatic status and taking into account the continued Russian aggression in Ukraine,” Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics tweeted.


Estonia’s foreign ministry said it expelled diplomats for “directly and actively undermining Estonia’s security and spreading propaganda justifying Russia’s military action,” the foreign ministry said in a statement.

Lithuania said the evictions were made “in solidarity with Ukraine”.

The Russian Foreign Ministry was not immediately available for comment when Reuters contacted him.
