MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's Foreign Ministry said on Friday it had summoned Greece's ambassador in Moscow to register its protest over "anti-Russian" statements made by Athens amid a diplomatic row that has strained relations.

Greece said last week it had expelled two Russian diplomats and barred two other people from entering the country for trying to bribe officials and foment demonstrations to thwart a deal to allow Macedonia to join NATO.
