MOSCOW, May 19 (Xinhua) -- Russia said Thursday that it is expelling five diplomats of the Portuguese Embassy here in a retaliatory move.

The Russian Foreign Ministry summoned the Portuguese ambassador to Russia and protested against the expulsion of 10 Russian diplomats from Portugal.

The five Portuguese diplomats were declared "personae non gratae" and must leave Russia within 14 days.

On April 5, Portugal announced its decision to expel 10 employees of the Russian Embassy in Lisbon and demanded they leave the country within two weeks.
