Russia to take retaliatory measures against Britain

Russia says it will soon take retaliatory measures against Britain for its decision to expel twenty three Russian diplomats over the poisoning of an ex-spy and his daughter.

In a statement, Russian Foreign Ministry called the Britain's decision as a sign of choosing confrontation with Moscow.

The Foreign Ministry termed British Prime Minister Theresa May's statement in the parliament on the issue as a blatant provocation. It said the statement undermines the foundation of dialogue between the two countries.

Meanwhile, the United States has supported Britain's decision to expel Russian diplomats.
