MOSCOW: Russia on Tuesday declared an alleged CIA spy who was briefly detained earlier this week a persona non grata, ordering his immediate departure and saying Washington’s actions were reminiscent of the Cold War.

The foreign ministry said Ryan C. Fogle must return to the United States “as soon as possible,” adding that such “provocative acts in the spirit of the Cold War in no way help strengthen mutual trust” between Moscow and Washington.
