Right to get Moscow answers on spy - PM (4)

Russia angry at UK- Tony Brenton and Putin

"We can be reassured by the strong support we have received from our friends and allies around the world", May said at the Conservative Party's spring forum in London.

Having failed to get a quick reply from Russia, British Prime Minister Theresa May instituted a slew of measures in response to the attack, including expelling 23 Russian diplomats (Russia has promised to retaliate), and freezing its government assets considered potentially harmful to Britons.

Russia's decision to expel British diplomats does not change London's position on the poisoning of former Russian intelligence agent Sergei Skripal.

In a statement, they threatened to take further measures if Britain takes any more "unfriendly" moves toward Russian Federation.

Britain's top envoy has warned Russia's alleged involvement in the nerve agent poisoning of a former spy is "a challenge to all of us" as the Turnbull government considers its own possible sanctions against Moscow.

"It is our view that when political or diplomatic relations become hard, cultural relations and educational opportunities are vital to maintain on-going dialogue between people and institutions", it said. The tensions threaten to overshadow Putin's expected re-election Sunday for another six-year presidential term.

Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov, a spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry, shot back that Williamson's comments reflected a "high degree of his intellectual impotence", adding: "The boorish language is apparently the only thing left in the British military arsenal".

Correspondingly, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn's position has weakened and he has even been attacked by his own MPs for not giving stronger cross-party backing to May over Russian Federation.

On Saturday, the British ambassador in Moscow, Laurie Bristow, was summoned to Russia's foreign ministry and informed of the Kremlin's retaliation to Britain's retaliation in a 10-minute encounter.

Speaking on Russia-24 television, Zakharova on Saturday linked Britain's angry reaction to the war in Syria.

"Instead of submitting such a request, Britain has continued to stage a political performance", Lavrov said.

May announced two days ago that the diplomats, identified as "undeclared intelligence agents", had one week to leave the country in what represents the biggest expulsion of diplomats in over 30 years.

"You know how many oligarchs find safe haven in London - their money, the real estate, the children sent to secondary schools - and they can not imagine their life without that", he said.

"Russia is perplexed and does not comprehend the stance by the British leadership and the British side against the backdrop of Skripals' case", Peskov said, according to Russia's TASS news agency.

The expulsions came a day after British police launched a murder investigation after an autopsy revealed that a Russian exile who was critical of Putin was strangled in his home.

In the statement, Huckabee Sanders repeated her claim that the USA stood in solidarity with the United Kingdom, but this time she said the Trump administration shares its ally's conclusion that Russian Federation is culpable for the poisoning of Sergei Skripal, 66, and his 33-year-old daughter, Yulia.
