Johnson says corrupt Putin allies may be targeted

Browder says Vladimir Putin is “a real entrepreneur in political manipulation”

Russian President Vladimir Putin is facing criticism over comments suggesting Jews and other minorities may have been responsible for meddling in the 2016 US presidential election.

Putin's spokesman denounced the claim as "shocking and inexcusable". The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine noted that casting votes in Russian diplomatic and consular offices in the territory of Ukraine would be possible only if Russia fulfilled the aforementioned requirement of the Ukrainian side.

"This is a blatant violation of worldwide obligations, global law and particularly a violation of the rights of our citizens", the head of Russia's central election commission, Maya Grishina, was quoted as saying by Russian news agency RIA.

That seems unlikely given that Russian Federation, like Britain and the United States, is a permanent member of the Security Council. Peskov reiterated Russian denials of involvement in the attack on the Skripals.

During a no-holds-barred interview with NBC News' Megyn Kelly, Putin repeatedly denied ordering a multifaceted influence campaign to sabotage the presidential election.

The source of the nerve agent - which Britain says is Soviet-made Novichok - is unclear, as is the way it was administered. "I couldn't care less.They do not represent the interests of the Russian state".

"The countermeasures announced by the Prime Minister are not exclusively about the attack in Salisbury".

Moscow to Expel 23 UK Diplomats, Revokes Agreement on Opening Consulate Gen.
Meanwhile, U.K. police have also opened a murder investigation in the death of another Russian exile living in Britain. Speaking on Russia-24 television, Zakharova said Britain's angry reaction is connected to the war in Syria.

Russian Federation has demanded that Britain share samples collected by investigators.

Prime Minister Theresa May announced this week that 23 Russian diplomats would be expelled from Britain after concluding it was highly probable that Moscow was behind the poisoning, but she stopped short of pointing the finger directly at Putin.

Speaking alongside his Polish counterpart at the Battle of Britain Bunker in outer London, Johnson said the United Kingdom and its allies were waiting for a serious response from Russian Federation about the nerve agent attack.

Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, former commander of the British Army's chemical and biological weapons regiment, called the claim that USA or British agents could have developed Novichok "complete hogwash".

Vil Mirzayanov, who now lives in New Jersey, is quoted in the Novaya Gazeta newspaper as saying that he revealed the existence of Novichok because he thought it was necessary to deprive Russian Federation of its "deadly secret".

He also said Britain would send a sample of the nerve agent to the Organisation for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons for them to independently assess it.
