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".

Top EU lawmaker Guy Verhofstadt wants the European Union to sharpen sanctions on the Kremlin if necessary but also insists on a broader strategy to reach out to Russians in general.

Stoltenberg said Tuesday that the poisoning signaled a "reckless breach of global norms" by Russian Federation, and praised countries that had already taken action to punish Moscow for the attack.

Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said Tuesday that the nerve-agent attack on Skripal and his daughter Yulia was a "shocking and abhorrent" use of chemical weapons.

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.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull slammed "reckless and deliberate" conduct by Russian Federation that harms global security and violates rules against the use of chemical weapons.

Western nations have expelled more than 130 diplomats in recent days. British allies don't have any objective and exhaustive data and blindly follow the principle of Euro-Atlantic unity at the expense of common sense, the rules of civilised state-to-state dialogue and the principles of global law.
