North Atlantic Treaty Organisation withdraws accreditation of 7 Russian diplomats

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation withdraws accreditation of 7 Russian diplomats

In yet another victory for Theresa May's efforts to get the world to turn on Russian Federation, he said today: "This will send a clear message to Russian Federation that there are costs and consequences for their unacceptable pattern of behaviour".

Britain has ordered the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats and has said it will consider other measures following the March 4 poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter with what London says was a Soviet-era nerve agent.

Numerous countries to follow suit on Monday said they did so out of solidarity with the British government. Belgium have indicated they would announce actions to be taken.

Theresa May hailed the "unprecedented series of expulsions" of Russian diplomats across the globe following the assassination attempt against Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia earlier this month.

Moscow has fiercely denied any involvement in his attempted murder, instead pointing the finger at London. The US move came despite Trump's previous promise to improve relations with Moscow.

"We'll respond, have no doubt!"

"I welcome the global support that we have garnered", she said. "It is important that we work in solidarity with each other, free people in democracies to stop Russian Federation and condemn Russian Federation for this kind of belligerent activity", Ryan said.


The European countries that are non-EU member states are as follows: Ukraine (13), Albania (2), Macedonia (1) and Norway (1).

"Relations between Russian Federation and the West are entering a period of full Cold War", foreign policy analyst Fyodor Lukyanov wrote in the Vedomosti daily. British officials have placed the blame squarely on Russian Federation, a charge President Vladimir Putin adamantly denies.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Washington and its allies were acting "in response to Russia's use of a military-grade chemical weapon on the soil of the United Kingdom".

They remain in critical condition after exposure to a nerve agent, which, according to the British authorities, could have originated from Russian Federation.

In his article for The Times, Johnson said the attack fell into pattern of "reckless behavior" by Putin, including the annexation of Crimea.

British officials say Russian Federation has sought to divert attention by putting out more than a dozen explanations for the attack, the first using a nerve agent in Europe since World War II.

The move comes one day after the United States announced that it will expel 60 Russian diplomats suspected of espionage.
