A group of Italian Special Operations National Gendarmerie seized the two men in Rome on Tuesday evening

Italy expelled two diplomats from the Russian embassy in Rome after arresting an Italian navy officer “in flagrante delicto to hand over classified documents to a Russian military official in an espionage case that angered Rome.”

Italian Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio said that this is a very dangerous matter.

Russia said it would respond in kind.

Italian police said that a naval officer was arrested while he was handing confidential documents to a Russian military official.
