US Should Join Britain in Punishing Putin — WashPost

The man, named Ian, said he had been in the first ambulance service response car on the scene.

Officials have declined to say whether he intends to keep that commitment.

The Kremlin denies involvement in the nerve agent poisoning, insisting a motive was to complicate Russia's hosting of the World Cup this summer, Russian news agency Interfax reported.

Mr Trump's statement comes shortly after the White House announced a new series of sanction on Russia over interference in the 2016 US elections.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May reacts as she exits 10 Downing Street in central London on March 14, 2018, to greet Luxembourg's Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, ahead of their meeting.

Mr Cummins, who has retired, was posted to Moscow for three-and-a-half years.

Mr Johnson said the UK would send a sample of the nerve agent to the Organisation for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons for independent assessment.

"The second is that this agent could only be made by a Russian government facility". But the newspaper maintained it will take more than action from London to stop Putin.

"The profession of a traitor is one of the most dangerous in the world", Kleimenov said. Both of them have been hospitalized and are presently in critical condition.

Prime Minister Theresa May told lawmakers that the 23 diplomats, who have been identified as undeclared intelligence officers, have a week to leave.

The UK was "grateful for French solidarity at this time", a British diplomatic source told AFP.

Moscow on Thursday accused the British government of implicating Russia in the poisoning of an ex-spy to "deflect attention" from difficult negotiations with the EU over Brexit.

The Russian diplomat also said that Russia is ready to cooperate professionally and insisted that accusations against another state must be supported by bullet-proof facts, which Britain did not provide.

"I spoke with the prime minister and we are in deep discussions in a very sad situation", he said. "In other words, confess", the BBC quoted Vasily Nebenzya, Moscow's ambassador to the United Nations.

It is an assault on the United Kingdom's sovereignty and any such use by a state party is a clear violation of the Chemical Weapons Convention and a breach of international law.

Haley called the crisis a "defining moment" for the U.N. and said the United States was solidly behind Britain.

Britain and three of its closest allies - the US, France and Germany - have now unanimously blamed Russia for the "brazen" attack on Skripal, who handed secerts to M16, and his daughter in Salisbury. Dozens of civilians and first responders were also exposed.

"We call on Russia to address all questions related to the attack in Salisbury".

"They are not going to take this lying down and we should expect that".

The Russian ministry said May's statement was an "unprecedentedly rude provocation which undermines the foundations of normal bilateral dialogue between our countries".
