Britain's Accusations Against Putin in Nerve Attack Are 'Shocking,' Kremlin Says

Moscow announced earlier Saturday it would expel 23 British diplomats and close a British consulate following London's "provocative" measures over the March 4 incident in which Sergei Skripal and his daughter were exposed to a rare nerve agent in the English town of Salisbury. In a YouTube video aired late Thursday, he mocked Sobchak and other candidates, describing them as "clowns" manipulated by the Kremlin, and called on his supporters to press for change by taking to the streets.

Rallying support from the US, France, and Germany was a major victory, which has made Russian Federation look isolated. "Any reference or mentioning of our President is nothing else but shocking and unpardonable diplomatic misconduct".

Britain had only expelled the Russian diplomats after Moscow had failed to explain how the nerve toxin had got to Britain, he said.

Freeze Russian State assets wherever we have the evidence that they may be used to threaten the life or property of United Kingdom nationals or residents. "There is to be no Russophobia as a result of what is happening", Johnson said.

Britain has sought support from allies in the European Union and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, including the United States.

In contrast to German Chancellor Angela Merkel and US President Donald Trump who assured Mrs May they were taking her government's views seriously, President Emmanuel Macron and other French officials have declined to point a finger directly at Russian Federation. He reiterated the Syrian government's condemnation of any use of chemical weapons, which he stressed run counter to "all worldwide laws and conventions".

In an interview with Newshub last week before the attack in Britain, he said he was "deadly serious" about pursuing a Russian Federation trade deal, and that there was no evidence Russian Federation had been responsible for shooting down a passenger plane over Ukraine.

Russian Federation has dismissed the accusations as "fairy tales" and denied any involvement in the attack against Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, which landed the pair, along with an English police officer, in the hospital.

Glushkov, 68, was found dead at his home in the south-west London on March 12.

Russian investigators said on Friday they had opened a criminal investigation into the attempted murder of Yulia Skripal and offered to cooperate with British authorities.

Counterterrorism police are leading the investigation "because of the associations Mr. Glushkov is believed to have had", a police statement said.

In an online post, the Russian committee said the attempt on Yulia Skripal's life was "committed in a unsafe manner endangering other people, in Salisbury".

He warned Mrs May not to "rush way ahead of the evidence" - highlighting the way worldwide crises such as the Iraq War had seen "clear thinking" overwhelmed by "emotion and hasty judgments".

Britain, the United States, Germany and France jointly called on Russian Federation on Thursday to explain the attack. He accused Russian Federation of "ripping up the worldwide rulebook" and "attempting to "subvert, undermine and influence" countries around the world".

A bitter war or words has erupted after Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson suggested Russian Federation should "go away and shut up".

Similarly, a YouGov poll for The Times found that 53% of people thing Theresa May has responded "well" to the attempted assassination of the former Russian spy.

One much-reported case of a Russian meeting a suspicious death in Britain in recent years was that of former FSB secret service operative Alexander Litvinenko, poisoned after his tea was laced with highly radioactive polonium-210. The Kremlin has always denied the accusation.
