UK expels four Russian diplomats

The UK is to expel four Russian diplomats in response to Moscow's
refusal to extradite the prime suspect in the murder of Alexander

Foreign Secretary David Miliband also said co-operation with Russia
on a range of issues was under review.

2. Nothing Political About This
Most countries conduct espionage against each other regardless of their political or diplomatic relations, especially countries like the UK and Russia. There were Russian spies causing mischief in the UK when the Czars were in power, and there will be British spies in Russia as long as these countries exist.

3. This
is retaliation for Russia not sending the suspect of the murder of the ex KGB agent in London.
