Why Germany is ignoring its own Russian spy scandal
Last March, after the attempt to poison the former Russian spy Sergei Skripal in Salisbury, England, it took the British government only a week to accuse Russia of being responsible; by the 10th day after the crime, it was already expelling Russian diplomats. Now, the same length of time after a very similar event in Berlin, the German government is reacting very differently.
