Tit-for-tat: Russia expels nearly 23 UK diplomats

ffdnlej

A couple of days after the United Kingdom initiated a move to expel several Russian diplomats from the country, Moscow has expelled at least twenty-three UK diplomats working in its territory in a tit for tat manner.

The UK move to expel the Russian diplomats was a natural response to an alleged Russian attack in its soil on a Russian double agent, who worked for the UK, and his daughter.

The Kingdom has, as per a report, got enough evidence to suspect the Russian agents’ involvement in the attack.

The double agent and his daughter, who suffered a nerve agent poisoning, are still in critical condition.

While responding about the Russian move, the UK representatives have claimed that they have expected such a move from Moscow. Anyway, there is serious warning in the counter-statement issued by the UK that the tit-for-tat move will not help Moscow to escape from the blame of the attack.

Earlier, the US, France and Germany supported the UK’s harsher move against the Russian government, which is at the edge of an election in which Putin is likely to retain his top post without facing much serious competition.

With the support of the West, the UK is likely to impose more severe retaliatory moves against the Russians.
