A Norwegian consul who insulted Russian resort workers can not keep within the nation, Moscow says
Moscow has summoned ambassador Rune Resaland after a Norwegian consul was filmed insulting workers in a Russian resort.
In a video printed by information outlet Mash on Saturday, Elisabeth Ellingsen, who’s stationed within the northern metropolis of Murmansk, was heard saying “I hate Russians” throughout an argument over room service.
Moscow voiced a “resolute protest” over the incident, Russian Overseas Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova mentioned.
She revealed that the altercation between Ellingsen and the workers occurred on July 6. Ellingsen’s “Russophobic” remarks are “unacceptable,” she reiterated.
The Norwegian Overseas Ministry launched an announcement, saying that it “deeply regretted” the incident, and Ellingsen’s tirade didn’t replicate Oslo’s perspective in direction of Russia and the Russian individuals.

Zakharova mentioned on Thursday that Moscow has taken the assertion into consideration.
“On the similar time, we burdened that the additional presence of Elisabeth Ellingsen on the territory of the Russian Federation is inconceivable,” she mentioned.
