Russia summons Austrian envoy over Vienna spying allegations - Ifax

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s foreign ministry summoned Austria’s ambassador on Friday after Vienna demanded an explanation over suspicions that a retired Austrian colonel had spied for Moscow, Russian news agencies reported.

Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said earlier the recently retired officer, who he did not name, may have carried out spying activities since the 1990s.
