Russian Federation expels diplomats in spy-poisoning quarrel

Speaking at the Conservative Spring Forum, Mrs May said the Government had "anticipated" a similar response to her action earlier this week to expel 23 Russian diplomats from London.

Russian Federation said Saturday, March 17 that it would expel 23 British diplomats and close a British consulate following London's "provocative" measures over the poisoning of a double agent that has triggered an escalating war of words.

Specialist officers in protective suits secure the police forensic tent that had been blown over by the wind and is covering the bench where Sergei Skripal was found critically ill, March 7, 2018.

On Friday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said statements by British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson tying Putin to the attack were "shocking and unforgivable".

The Russian ministry also warned Britain that it "retains the right to take other answering measures" in response to any "further unfriendly actions".

Britain's ambassador to Russia, Laurie Bristow, was summoned to Russia's foreign ministry on Saturday.

He said: "Sooner or later, the British will have to show some proof to those "colleagues" who say they are with United Kingdom on this; sooner or later will have to stand up its accusations".

In a joint statement, they said it was the first nerve agent attack in Europe since the Second World War, and called on the Kremlin to declare its chemical weapons programme to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

Russian court officials at the time said he'd received at least $100,000 for his work for MI6, the British intelligence service.

Southampton sack manager Pellegrino
Saints will be hoping to appoint Pellegrino's successor quickly, with an FA Cup quarter-final at Wigan looming on Sunday. Former Liverpool coach Pellegrino was tasked with building upon Claude Puel's work when he took over last summer.

"That is why we are at odds with Russian Federation".

Britain's response to the expiry of the deadline and lack of explanation from Moscow was expected to be announced by May in parliament later, after she chaired a meeting of the National Security Council at her Downing Street office in the morning.

The Russian side has denied any involvement in the Skripal poisoning and promised to come up with appropriate countermeasures to the British restrictions.

Britain is also trying to build a unified Western response, saying the attack in Salisbury is just the latest example of Russia's disregard for the rule of law.

"In its blatant Russian-ness, the nerve agent sends a signal to all who may be thinking of dissent in the intensifying repression of Putin's Russia", he said.

He said: "My guess is actually our British friends and partners are afraid - they are afraid that our experts may analyse these samples and they may see some dirty tricks there or something".

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn told the Labour conference that "Russian authorities must be held to account on the basis of the evidence" and called for Britain to "stop serving Russian crony capitalism".

The leader of Britain's main opposition party says the government shouldn't rush to blame Moscow for the nerve agent poisoning of a former spy.
