PM Theresa Takes SERIOUS Action Against Russia After Ex-Spy Poisoning Standoff (WATCH LIVE)

Prime Minister Theresa May is set to make a statement to MPs on Russia. Her deadline for Moscow to explain why former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned with a nerve agent on UK soil has passed.

Russia has said it will not respond to the prime minister’s demand until it has a sample of the toxin and an internationally accepted procedure is followed in the investigation.

The case must go through the proper channels of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), of which both Russia and the UK are members, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said.

The OPCW rules allow London to send a formal inquiry to Moscow, with a 10-day window for a reply.

Britain will expel 23 Russian diplomats, Prime Minister Theresa May has announced. It comes as part of a range of measures in response to the poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skripal.

May said Russia has provided no credible explanation, and has instead responded with sarcasm and disdain. She said Russia is “culpable” for the Skripal incident, which represents unlawful use of force against the UK.

The PM iterated that the 23 Russian diplomats have been identified as undeclared intelligence officers. It will be the largest expulsion for 30 years. They will have a week to leave, the UK PM added.

Russia has denied any involvement in the attempted murder of Skripal, 66, and his 33-year-old daughter Yulia in Salisbury. The two were found slumped on a bench in the town center on March 3, allegedly poisoned with a Soviet-engineered nerve agent called Novichok.
