Russian Federation warns United Kingdom it will retaliate for expulsion of diplomats

Putin suggests 'Jews' meddled in US elections

British Prime Minister Theresa May is seeking a global coalition of countries to punish Moscow, and the U.S., France and Germany have already lined up against Russian Federation over the Skripal attack.

Britain's media regulator said it was considering Prime Minister Theresa May's statement on the poisoning of a Russian double agent before deciding whether the state-funded Russia Today (RT) should face an investigation that could lead to the revocation of its United Kingdom broadcasting licences.

Mr Lavrov also said the UK's approach to the matter was partly prompted by the government's problems over Brexit.

Geopolitical tensions have been mounting since the poisoning of the Skripals in the English city of Salisbury on March 4, in what Western powers see as the latest sign of increasingly aggressive Russian interference in foreign countries.

Britain's foreign minister increased pressure on Russian Federation over the poisoning case of one of Moscow's ex-spies by claiming it was "overwhelmingly likely" President Vladimir Putin directly ordered the attack. "But to all appearances, they had no real concerns: they went to lunch and they went to a pub". May on Wednesday expelled 23 Russian diplomats, severed high-level contacts and vowed both open and covert action following the incident.

"We have written to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons", the spokesman told reporters.

Kremlin says no clear proof Russian Federation behind Skripal attack - RIA
Peskov on Thursday said Russian President Vladimir Putin would ultimately choose the option that " most suits Moscow's interests". On Thursday, British Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson said Moscow had made a "deliberate political decision" to poison Skripal.

Johnson defended Britain's response and suggested that there could be further consequences for Russians close to Putin.

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 told the BBC a sample of the nerve agent would be sent to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons - the independent global body set up to stop chemical warfare - for analysis.

The source of the nerve agent - which Britain says is Soviet-made Novichok - is unclear, as is the way it was administered.

Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, former commander of the British Army's chemical and biological weapons regiment, called the claim that US or British agents could have developed Novichok "complete hogwash". It had said it would take it into consideration if May blamed Russian Federation for the poisoning attack.

Russia Today, or RT, is a round-the-clock news network that is funded by Vladimir Putin's government to broadcast news with an edge for viewers who want to "question more".
