The Swiss are sick and tired of Russian hackers and spies!
"The Swiss ministry said it summoned Sergei Garmonin, Moscow’s ambassador in Bern, to protest Russian activity in Switzerland.
The statement did not cite specifics, but it came a day after newspaper reports said Russian spies had allegedly targeted a laboratory in Spiez that was testing the nerve agent used on Russian double agent Sergei Skripal in the English city of Salisbury in March.
The lab also tests suspected weapons of the type allegedly used by Russia's ally, the Syrian government, in that country's civil war.
It is the third time the ministry has summoned the Russian ambassador this year to protest alleged attacks on organizations operating in Switzerland.
In the most recent case, the Swiss government on September 15 confirmed reports that Dutch authorities had arrested and expelled two suspected Russian spies earlier this year after the two allegedly tried to hack the Swiss laboratory.
Switzerland summoned the Russian ambassador to protest the “attempted attack” as Moscow rejected the allegations, the latest Western claim about Russian spying and other acts of interference.
The alleged target in the recent case was the Spiez Laboratory, which analyzed samples from the March poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in England.
