The Russian Federation has announced that they are expelling 23 United Kingdom diplomats from Moscow.

The expulsions stem from British accusations that the Russian government used a nerve agent to poison former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia. The British Council and the British Consulate in St. Petersburg are also to be closed.

Prime Minister Theresa May said the UK government would consider its next steps “in the coming days, alongside our allies and partners”.
