Russian spy: UK to expel 23 Russian diplomats

Source: BBC

The UK will expel 23 Russian diplomats after Moscow refused to explain how a Russian-made nerve agent was used on former spy in Salisbury, the PM says.

Theresa May said the diplomats, who have a week to leave, were identified as "undeclared intelligence officers".

Russia denies being involved in the attempted murder of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

It refused to meet Mrs May's midnight deadline to co-operate in the case.

5. Stunning word by May when she

named the allies that have been helpful, supporting and in agreement with the UK position. Mentioned Canada and Australia and NEVER mentioned America. Other speakers also spoke of the support from allies, again naming countries in the EU and elsewhere...but NEVER mentioning the US.
