Russian Federation summons British ambassador to foreign ministry

Russian Federation summons British ambassador to foreign ministry Russian Federation summons British ambassador to foreign ministry

Russia's Foreign Ministry summoned the British ambassador to Moscow on Saturday morning and told him that the diplomats had one week to leave Russian Federation.

Russia's government is expelling 23 British diplomats and threatened further measures in retaliation in a growing diplomatic dispute over a nerve agent attack on a former spy in Britain.

The country's Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced it had ordered the diplomats to leave within a week, moments after Britain's ambassador to Russia Laurie Bristow left the ministry in Moscow.

Yesterday, Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said it was "overwhelmingly likely" that Russian President Vladimir Putin himself made the decision to use a nerve toxin against Mr Skripal. It has cast Britain as a post-colonial power unsettled by its impending exit from the European Union, and even suggested London fabricated the attack to whip up anti-Russian hysteria.

"We will always do what is necessary to defend ourselves, our allies and our values against an attack of this sort, which is an attack not only on the United Kingdom, but upon the global rules-based system on which all countries, including Russian Federation, depend for their safety and security", Bristow told reporters after being informed of the expulsions.

The national security council will meet early next week to consider the "next steps".

The Russian foreign ministry said it was taking the measures in response to what it called the U.K.'s "provocative actions and unfounded accusations" over the poisoning case.

It warned London it stood ready to take further measures in the event of more "unfriendly steps".

The British Council said it was profoundly disappointed by Russia's decision and remained committed to developing long-term people-to-people links with Russian Federation despite the closure.

Speaking at a regional party conference in Newcastle, Mr Corbyn condemned the attack but said it was important to fully establish the facts before passing blame on the Russian government. Russian Federation has demanded that Britain share samples collected by investigators.

Russia has now denied that any program under the name Novichok ever existed, despite the evidence presented two decades ago by the Russian scientist Vil Mirzayanov, who revealed its existence after becoming concerned it violated Russia's commitments to the Chemical Weapons Convention.

Britain has escalated a war of words with Russian Federation over the incident in recent days.

It has also been suggested that up to four mysterious deaths with links to Russian Federation might be reopened in the wake of the Skripal case.

The Skripals remain in a critical condition following the attack that also poisoned a British police officer.

British police appealed Saturday for witnesses who can help investigators reconstruct the Skripals' movements in the crucial hours before they were found unconscious.

The Prime Minister expelled 23 Russian diplomats from the United Kingdom who she said were undeclared intelligence officers.
