In Retaliation To UK's Move, Russia Will Expel British Diplomats

Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, 33, have been in a critical condition ever since they were struck down by a deadly substance believed to be novichok on March 4. May on Wednesday expelled 23 Russian diplomats, severed high-level contacts and vowed both open and covert action following the incident.

"Everything leads us to believe that responsibility can be attributed to Russia, and the work of the British services, shared with France's services, confirms it", he said during a visit to the wine-growing Loire region in central France. Either the attempted murder was "a direct act by the Russian state" or Moscow had "lost control of this potentially catastrophically damaging nerve agent", and some other party had used it.

Boris Johnson confirmed the UK will submit a sample of the nerve agent to the Organisation for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) for it to carry out its own tests.

British Prime Minister Theresa May earlier demanded Russia to provide an explanation over the poisoning of Sergey Skripal and his daughter in British soil.

Lavrov, in remarks carried by the RIA Novosti news agency, said the move would come "soon", but added that Moscow would inform London through official channels before publicly announcing its countermeasures.

A World Cup boycott by ministers and the Royal Family. "Soon. I promise you that".

Sergei Skripal moved to Salisbury after being jailed for passing Russian state secrets to British intelligence while working for the Russian government in the 1990s. "It certainly looks like the Russians are behind it".

A still image from CCTV footage recorded on February 27, 2018 shows former Russian spy Sergei Skripal buying groceries at the Bargain Stop convenience store in Salisbury on February 27, 2018. He will meet NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg to discuss the situation, the alliance said in a statement.

Britain had demanded Russia disclose details of the programme to the OPCW by midnight on Tuesday, but Moscow refused to respond to the "language of ultimatums".

Britain's response on Wednesday to the nerve agent attack on a Russian double agent in southern England does not go far enough and senior Kremlin figures should be targeted with sanctions, the widow of a Russian dissident murdered in London said.

She continued to elaborate that Russia had created a "well established pattern" and their response "has shown complete disdain" as the matter was treated with "sarcasm, contempt and defiance".

The world leaders said: "We call on Russia to address all questions related to the attack".

It said: "Allies expressed deep concern at the first offensive use of a nerve agent on Alliance territory since Nato's foundation". Its foreign ministry called the allegations by Prime Minister Theresa May "insane".

"France agrees with the United Kingdom that there is no other plausible explanation (than Russian involvement) and reiterates its solidarity with its ally", President Emmanuel Macron's office said. "It threatens the security of us all".
