Background: A second Soviet diplomat has been expelled by the Indonesian authorities. Official sources said Grigory Odaryuk was asked to leave after being involved in a fistfight at Jakarta airport last Saturday (6 February). Police said he was attempting to prevent the arrest of the local head of Aeroflot, Alexander Finenko. Mr. Finenko was trying to leave Indonesia with the first expelled Soviet diplomat, Sergei Egorov. The Indonesians have accused the Soviets of operating a spy ring in their country. The controversy sparked off a series of angry demonstrations outside the Soviet Embassy. About 50 people, mainly youths connected with the ruling Golkar Party, paraded outside the embassy on Wednesday (10 February). Others picketed Aeroflot.
