Russian Federation could announce measures against Britain 'any minute'

Russian Federation could announce measures against Britain 'any minute'

Theresa May announced on Wednesday that 23 Russian diplomats will be expelled from the United Kingdom and a range of other measures taken against Moscow, including detaining suspected spies at the United Kingdom border, increasing checks on private flights and freezing some Russian state assets.

Mrs. May also revoked an invitation to Russia's foreign minister and said the Royal family would not attend the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation later this year.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said earlier on Friday that it was overwhelmingly likely that Putin himself made the decision to strike down a former Russian agent on English soil.

Federer clinched the victory on his second match point when he blasted his 12th and final ace of the contest. He faces Borna Coric in the last four after the Croat beat South Africa's Kevin Anderson 2-6 6-4 7-6 (7-3).

The spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, also said Moscow was still working on retaliatory measures against Britain for London's decision to expel 23 Russian diplomats over the poisoning, which left Skripal and his daughter critically ill.

"These are all signs of a provocation against our country".

Russian Federation described the UK's position as irresponsible and not backed up by evidence.

"You can expect it any minute", Peskov told a conference call with reporters.

The CDC's initial announcement identified 28 people who fell sick across 20 states between October 12, 2017 and January 308. It is also sold as a dietary supplement in the form of pills and powder, or the leaves can be crushed to make tea.

In London, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson ratcheted up the rhetoric against Russian Federation, accusing it of glorying in the attack on Skripal, which he described as a way of scaring anyone who stood up to President Vladimir Putin.

The Kremlin was quick to dismiss Britain's accusation on Friday that Russian President Vladimir Putin had ordered a nerve-agent attack in southern England as "shocking and inexcusable".

"The fact that both the father and daughter came down with very similar symptoms at a similar time suggests that the contact with Novichok was fairly close for both of them", said Alastair Hay, a professor emeritus of environmental toxicology at the University of Leeds.

Johnson said the attack was a way for Putin to send a message to anyone considering taking a stand against it that "You do that, you are going to die". He also cast doubt on the possibility that the nerve agent was sent through the mail or was placed in luggage that Skripal's daughter brought with her from Russian Federation to Britain. He was freed as part of a spy swap deal in 2010 and took refuge in Britain.
