The Israeli military attache to Russia, Vadim Leiderman, who was expelled by Moscow last week, received three prior warnings by the Russian government prior to his deportation, Russian newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda reported Monday.

In November of 2009, the Russian Foreign Ministry sent the first of three notes to the Israeli Embassy, pointing to what it claimed were violations of of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, according to the report. The second warning was issued to the embassy in April 2010. The final warning, according to Komsomolskaya Pravda, was issued in December 2010.
