Britain expels 23 Russian diplomats who have a week to leave the country, British Prime Minister Theresa May said in a speech to parliament, CNN quoted her as saying.

The measure is due to the scandal with former Russian agent Sergei Scripal, who was poisoned with a neuropathic substance produced in the USSR. May announced that Russian assets would be frozen if they are considered to be a threat. The decision to expel diplomats was taken this morning at a meeting of the National Security Council.
