Denmark expelled two members of a Soviet trade delegation on Thursday, charging they were involved in industrial espionage. They were the third and fourth Soviet officials ordered to leave Denmark since 1981. Their expulsions brought to seven the number of East-bloc expulsions announced this week in three NATO countries.
Soviet Charge d'Affaires Sergei E. Zhouravliev was told that ''two members of the staff of the Soviet Union's trade delegation in Denmark have carried out illegal espionage work during their stay in Denmark'' and must leave within 14 days, the Foreign Ministry announced.
