VILNIUS (Reuters) – Estonia said the reported detention of one of its diplomats by Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) on Tuesday was “a set-up” and the accusations against him were “groundless”.
“This accusation that he was in possession of classified documents is completely groundless. This is a provocation. The whole incident was a set-up,” Estonian foreign ministry spokeswoman Aari Lemmik told Reuters.
