Vienna will expel a Russian diplomat, Austria’s foreign ministry said Monday, amid media reports that he was involved in economic espionage.

“We can confirm that a Russian diplomat will be expelled,” the ministry said in a statement.

Media reports said the diplomat, accused of economic espionage, had been given until September 1 to leave the country.
