Russia has ordered the expulsion of the UK’s military attache after a similar move by British authorities last week, as Cold War-style tensions rise between London and Moscow.

In a statement on Thursday afternoon, the Russian foreign ministry ordered Captain Adrian Coghill to leave the country.

“The defence attache at the British Embassy in Moscow, A. T. Coghill, has been declared persona non grata. He must leave the territory of the Russian Federation within a week,” it said.

It comes a week after Britain ejected Colonel Maxim Elovik, a Russian military attache, following his identification as a spy.
