Counter Attack! Russian Government Promise To Deport British Diplomats From Moscow After Britain Deported 23 Russian Diplomats

The Russian government has announced that it is set to expel British diplomats in Moscow, in response to the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats from England by the British government.
In a statement to Russian press this afternoon, Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, said the Russian government will expel British diplomats “soon,” in retaliation to the action taken by the British government.
Relations between the two countries became cold after the UK government blamed Russia for the attempted murder of a Russian double agent, Sergei, and his 33-year-old daughter, Yulia Skripal, in England
The Russian Government’s decision is part of Moscow’s promise to retaliate against the United Kingdom’s recent measures against it.
