28 March 2018, 12:45 | Tara Lloyd

Over 100 Russian diplomats have been removed, the biggest western expulsion of Russian diplomats since the height of the Cold War.

Mrs May's spokesman said the PM told the Cabinet the move against Russian Federation was "an unprecedented series of expulsions that has demonstrated to the Kremlin that we will not tolerate their attempts to flout worldwide law, undermine our values or threaten our security".

Ryan also accused Russian Federation of spreading disinformation and engaging in cyberattacks.

Russia, which denies any part in the March 4 attack on the Skripals, says the West's action is a "provocative gesture" and has said it will respond.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation joined 25 governments around the world Tuesday in expelling Russian diplomats in response to a nerve agent attack in Britain, marking what London called a "turning point" in the West's relations with Moscow.

"This will send a clear message to Russian Federation that there are costs and consequences for their unacceptable pattern of behavior".

In retaliation, Moscow expelled an equal number of British diplomats and closed a British consular mission. They are joined by decision to expel Russian diplomatic personnel from Australia and Macedonia.

Russian Federation denies responsibility and has vowed a "tough response" to the expulsions. Germany, France, and Poland each expelled four; the Czech Republic and Lithuania each expelled three; Spain, the Netherlands, Denmark, and Italy each expelled two; and Hungary, Sweden, Croatia, Romania, Finland, Latvia, and Estonia announced plans to expel one Russian diplomat each.

The comments came as Ireland became the 24th country to join the the United Kingdom in diplomatic action against the Kremlin.
