Al Jazeera, 02 Apr 2021
Italy has expelled two Russians after police in Rome said an Italian Naval Officer was caught selling classified documents to a Russian envoy.
The accusations are the latest in a number of recent charges of espionage against Russia.
The stolen documents reportedly include top secret information from NATO and the Italian military.
Moscow says it's unaware of the circumstances of the case but it could take possible steps.
