British Government Presses Moscow Over Poisoning Of Former Spy

March 13, 2018 - 11:03 am

MOSCOW (1010 WINS) -- Russian news agencies say the Foreign Ministry has summoned the British Ambassador in Moscow over the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter in the U.K.

This comes as the British government awaits an official response from Russia.

"On Wednesday, we will consider in detail the response from the Russian state. Should there be no credible response, we will conclude that this action amounts to an unlawful use of force by the Russian state against the United Kingdom," Prime Minister Theresa May said.

Some in Moscow have called May's allegations a circus show. Putin isn't blinking, and stared down the British leader.

"Get to the bottom of things there first, then we'll discuss it," he said through a translator.

President Trump weighed in on the matter on Tuesday.

"As soon as we get the facts straight, if we agree with them, we will condemn Russia or whoever it may be. But I have not spoken to her. I'll speak to her sometime today," Trump said.
