Russia vows to expel UK diplomats

There was, however, little sign last night of Russia or Mr Putin conceding any ground as Britain awaited Moscow's formal response to Mrs May's announcement on Wednesday of measures including the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats.

Britain views the poisoning of ex-double agent Sergei Skripal as a "possibility to launch this anti-Russian campaign", said Yakovenko, who has been serving in his position since 2011.

"Britain is trying to find [its] place, and they found that place in a so-called anti-Russian campaign", he said.

The UK, US, France and Germany issued a joint statement over the Salisbury attack on Wednesday calling it "an assault on UK sovereignty".

The sanctions prompted a swift threat of retaliation from the Russian government, which said a response was already being prepared.

So I said I don't want to be there just for pressing the button (to vote).' Kafelnikov, who won two Grand Slam singles titles, added: 'I always thought sports and politics should not collide together on the same path, should be completely separate.

US President Trump's spokeswoman accused Russia of undermining the security of countries worldwide.

The four nations called upon Moscow to provide full and complete disclosure of its Novichok nerve agent program to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

May on Thursday visited Salisbury, a normally sedate city where police investigators in chemical protection suits and the army have been removing evidence of the poisoning.

Mirzayanov revealed details of Russia's chemical weapons in the 1990s because he said he was afraid of their impact.

Russia has rejected all accusations and vowed to respond to the UK's steps.

The White House says it "stands in solidarity" with "its closest ally" the UK and supports its decision to expel 23 Russian diplomats.

"It is quite surprising for us, but this is the new reality in the new political culture in the United Kingdom".

Skripal, who was turned by Britain's MI6 agency while serving in Spain, was arrested in Moscow in 2004 and convicted in 2006 of treason. Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said in the Guardian that it's possible that "Russian mafia-like groups", rather than the Russian state, were responsible. The two remain in critical condition.

Vil Mirzayanov, who now lives in New Jersey, said that if the substance is Novichok, as Britain claims, it's "100 percent" clear it came from Russia.

They include Moscow's intelligence services, a propaganda organisation and businessman Evgeny Prigozhin, one of 13 Russian nationals charged with interfering with US elections and political processes by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

It may worry you that much of our mainstream press is increasingly reporting with a strong right-wing bias.

Mr Logvinov said he had not spoken directly to Ms Bishop or Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull about the nerve agent attack.
