Russia orders Austrian journalist to leave in response to Austria’s expulsion of journalist Tasso

MOSCOW (AP) — Russia’s Foreign Ministry says it has revoked the accreditation of a correspondent for Austrian public broadcaster ORF and ordered her to leave the country. The ministry says this is a response to Austria’s expulsion of a journalist from the Russian state news agency Tass. ORF claims that Maria Knips-Witting has been in Moscow since January. This was the latest action against foreign journalists in Russia.
