MOSCOW (Reuters) - The government of Moldova has committed "an outrageous act" against the Russian embassy in the country by ordering five Russian diplomats to leave the ex-Soviet nation, RIA news agency quoted Moldovan President Igor Dodon as saying on Monday.

Dodon was elected president last November as a pro-Russian candidate, following a campaign in which he vowed to slam the brakes on seven years of closer integration with the European Union.
