Russia Has Expelled 23 British Diplomats

Кирилл Калинников/РИА «Новости»

Russia has expelled 23 British diplomats in a deepening geopolitical dispute over a nerve agent attack on a former spy in Britain, the Guardian reports.

The Russian foreign ministry summoned the British ambassador on Saturday to inform him of the retaliatory action that follows the UK’s expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats earlier this week.

Britain’s foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, accused the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, of personally ordering the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter, who remain in hospital in critical condition after the 4 March attack.

Putin’s spokesman denounced the claim.
