Kremlin says response to Britain could come 'any minute'

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. This included the promise to step up sanctions, a threat to freeze "hostile" Russian state assets, and a wider intention to work against "suspicious" Russian money in the UK.

Russia's UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia gave a calm but sharply worded response to yesterday's antics at the UN Security Council, where U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley and British Ambassador Jonathan Allen hurled accusations that Russia is guilty of poisoning former MI6 double agent, former Russian GRU Col. Sergei Skripal and his daughter, and "must be held accountable".

The Trump administration diplomat said the United States "stands in absolute solidarity" with Britain, which moved Wednesday to expel 23 Russian diplomats. "We haven't seen this type of behaviour on a state level before", he told journalists.

Britain is at a profound moment in its history and can not "sit back" and let events overtake it, the defence secretary has told The Daily Telegraph, as he unveils new measures to tackle chemical and biological warfare.

Donald Trump, Theresa May, Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel all agreed that there was "no plausible alternative explanation" than that Russian Federation was to blame for the attack.

It's unclear. Some British media, citing unnamed police sources, are reporting that Yulia Skripal unknowingly brought the Novichok nerve agent to Salisbury in her suitcase on a plane trip from Moscow, arriving in Britain the day before the attack. The pair remain hospitalized in critical condition. Authorities have warned that dozens of other British citizens were put at risk by the attack, and more than 30 received medical checks and attention, though all were promptly discharged. He has 'Russia should go away and shut up.' Well, I don't know.

"Maybe he lacks education", Lavrov said at a news conference in Kazakhstan. Theresa May now has "highly possible" as her main argument backing Russia's alleged guilt. Russian Federation has said it will reply in kind. Mr Williamson studied social science at the University of Bradford.
