The Russian foreign ministry announced Saturday it will expel 23 British diplomats within a week in a tit-for-tat response to London's measures over the poisoning of a former Russian double agent and his daughter.
“Twenty-three diplomatic staff at the British embassy in Moscow are declared persona non grata and to be expelled within a week,” the foreign ministry said in a statement after summoning the British ambassador Laurie Bristow.
Bristow had also been summoned on Tuesday as a bitter row over the poisoning of a former double agent gathered pace.
