U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May wants to punish Russia following a nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy and his daughter in Salisbury.
The punishment includes expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats, the single biggest expulsion in over 30 years. May said the U.K. would also not send an official government representative to the soccer World Cup in Russia this year. May said to Parliment on Wednesday that the U.K. “doesn’t want to break off all dialogue but this relationship cannot be the same.” She also announced that the U.K. is “suspending all high-level contact between the U.K. and Russia.”
May added that the U.K. had “no disagreement with the people of Russia” and that it was not in the national interest to “break off all dialogue” with the country. Still, she warned that the U.K. would not “tolerate a threat to British life on U.K. soil” and that it would take other measures if there is more “Russian provocation.”
