Russian Federation tension: British diplomats leave Moscow

British Ambassador to Russia Laurie Bristow

The nerve agent came from Europe, the foreign ministry said.

Mr Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, remain in a critical condition after they were poisoned with the highly lethal nerve agent Novichok while eating at a Zizzi's in Salisbury on March 4.

The move comes after Britain, which blames Russia for the poisoning, expelled 23 Russian diplomats they said were spies and pressed European Union allies to follow suit despite Moscow's warning against confrontational steps.

On Friday, EU leaders promised an "unprecedented" diplomatic response to the attack after backing Theresa May's assertion that Moscow was responsible.

The EU has also recalled its ambassador to Moscow, backing Britain's view that Russian Federation is likely to blame for the nerve agent attack - an accusation the Kremlin rejects.

"In solidarity with the United Kingdom and other European Union countries, Latvia is now discussing with them how to coordinate a proper response to Russian activity regarding the chemical attack on Sergei Skripal", ministry spokesman Gints Jegermanis told AFP. His classmates felt he had betrayed the Motherland, ' he said. We spoke for about half an hour. "His mother, brother and other relatives were (in Russia)".

Alexander Yakovenko also wrote to Detective Sergeant Bailey, who has said his experience was "completely surreal".

Hero cop Nick Bailey has now been discharged from hospital after being left seriously ill when he rushed to the aid of the two Russians.
