The Russian Foreign Ministry on Monday summoned Dutch interim charge d'affaires Dominique Kuhling-Bakker to lodge a protest over spy equipment in the car of a Russian military attache in the Netherlands, APA reports citing Sputnik.

"Russia has lodged a strong protest with the Netherlands after spy equipment was discovered in a car of the Russian military attache in the Netherlands", the ministry said.

The ministry pointed out that such unfriendly steps deteriorate bilateral ties, which currently are not at their best.
