The Russian Foreign Ministry stated on Saturday that Moscow will respond with retaliatory measures to Germany's decision to expel 20 of its diplomats from the country, APA reports citing Teletrader.

"We strongly condemn these actions of Berlin, which continues to defiantly destroy the entire array of Russian-German relations, including their diplomatic dimension," the ministry's statement read. "As a reaction to hostile actions, a decision was made to mirror the expulsion of German diplomats from Russia, as well as to significantly limit the maximum number of employees of German diplomatic missions in our country."

In response, Russia decided to oust 20 German representatives from the country.
