Russia said Monday it has expelled a German diplomat and a number of Polish diplomats in response to the expulsion of its diplomats amid cooling ties with the EU over Ukraine.Moscow said the German was expelled from Moscow in a retaliatory measure for what it described as an "unfriendly" step earlier by Berlin of expelling a Russian diplomat.German newsweekly Der Spiegel had reported the expulsion of a German diplomat from Moscow at the weekend, saying it came after Berlin had expelled a Russian diplomat from Russia's consulate-general in Bonn.The Russian foreign ministry insisted that the incident was unrelated to the fact that German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier is due to visit Moscow Tuesday for talks on Ukraine with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov.
