The Swiss government is calling out the Russian government for espionage activities being carried out by Russian agents in Switzerland. This comes after the Swiss government expelled two Russian operatives earlier this year after they were caught during the planning stages of a cyber-attack on a Swiss weapons lab. The lab being targeted at the time was analyzing samples of the poison used against former Russian spy Sergey Skripal. This was the third time that the Swiss government confronted the Russians about cyber-actions being taken against the lab. While Russian tampering is nothing new to pretty much anyone in the world, seeing this level of repeated efforts on the same target so close together is surprising.
