The Great Britain thanks Ukraine for its decision to expel Russian diplomats. Judith Gough, British Ambassador in Ukraine wrote on Twitter.

She reposted Klimkin’s post on Twitter where he informed about Ukraine’s decision to expel 13 Russian diplomats in coordination with the friends and partners in the Democratic transatlantic community.

Ukraine decided to expel 13 Russian diplomats due to Skripal’s case – ex-GRU officer was poisoned in Britain.

The USA, Canada, Albania, Germany, France, Italy, Poland, Estonia, Finland, Czech Republic, Sweden, the Netherlands, Denmark, Croatia, Romania, Lithuania and Latvia stated about their intentions to expel Russian diplomats.

As we reported earlier, the ex-officer of the Russian armed forces Sergei Skripal was poisoned in the British city of Salisbury on March 4. Later, Prime Minister Theresa Mey stated that responsibility lies on Russia, and the investigation confirmed the use of the nerve gas, produced in Russia.

The UK expelled 23 Russian diplomats from the country as part of a response to the Salisbury incident. Later, the European Union decided to withdraw its ambassador from Russia for consultations. The Russian Foreign Ministry considers May's accusations regarding "the case of Skripal" a provocation.
