Russia Slams “Unprecedented, Hostile” UK Action, Vows Retaliation

Shortly after the Russian embassy in the UK reacted angrily to Britain’s expulsion of 23 diplomats after Theresa May accused Russia of using a chemical weapon on UK soil, saying that it considers “this hostile action as totally unacceptable, unjustified and shortsighted” and adding that “all the responsibility for the deterioration of the Russia-UK relationship lies with the current political leadership of Britain”, the Russian foreign ministry double down and warned that the UK’s “hostile actions” against Russia under the pretext of the poisoning of ex-double agent Sergei Skripal are an “unprecedented provocation” which won’t be left without a response.

The British move is “an unprecedentedly rude provocation, which undermines the foundations of a normal dialogue between our countries,” the ministry said in a statement.

The ministry said that “the British government chose confrontation with Russia” instead of completing the investigation and using international formats “including those in the framework of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.”

The Russian diplomats also claimed that “it’s obvious that by opting for unilateral and non-transparent methods of investigating this incident, the British authorities have once again tried to unleash an indiscriminate anti-Russian campaign.”

Moscow said that it was “unacceptable and unworthy” for the UK leadership to further escalate tensions in relations with Russia “in pursuit of its own deplorable political aims.”

“Needless to say, our response measures will not be long in coming,” the Foreign Ministry concluded.
