Theresa May Announces Expulsion of 23 Russian Diplomats

In a statement to the British House of Commons on March 14, 2018, British Prime Minister Theresa May announces the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats from the United Kingdom. The expulsions are in response to the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury, England, an act the British government has blamed on the Russian state.
