Russia Stocks Fall Most Globally as UK Responds to Poisoning

Russia Stocks Fall Most Globally as UK Responds to Poisoning

After the brazen poisoning of a former spy, British Prime Minister Theresa May quickly pinned the blame on Russian Federation.

Meanwhile, Trump's silence since May's remarks on Wednesday morning mark yet another incident in which the president, "for whatever reason, is not prepared to put Russian Federation on the spot", Kauzlarich said.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Thursday that the allegations were unacceptable and that British diplomats would be expelled, Russia's RIA news agency reported.

May told the House of Commons that 23 Russians diplomats who have been identified as undeclared intelligence officers have a week to leave Britain.

The reprisals come after Russian Federation refused to recognize a deadline of midnight Tuesday to provide an explanation for the nerve agent attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in southwest England.

They remain in critical condition in a hospital in Salisbury, southwestern England, after being found unconscious March 4.

Britain accused Russian Federation of involvement in the nerve agent poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skripal at a time when London's ties with European partners have been badly strained by Brexit.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Wednesday claimed that Syrian rebels were planning to stage a chemical attack to give the US-led coalition a pretext to strike Damascus. So did U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, in what ultimately became one of his last public statements before being fired.

"There is no place for these people - or their money - in our country", she said.

E*TRADE: Ulta Beauty May Be a Cheap Way to Play Retail
Baird with "Outperform" on Wednesday, August 24. (NASDAQ: ULTA ) earned "Hold" rating by BB&T Capital on Wednesday, April 20. Over the last three months, the shares of the company have changed -4.06% and performed -8.95% over the last six months.

Using existing powers, checks would also increase on private flights, customs and freight, and Russian assets could be frozen if there was evidence that they could be used to threaten the life or property of United Kingdom nationals or residents.

However Russia's ambassador said Britain's government was acting like the clueless Inspector Lestrade from the Sherlock Holmes novels, and mounting a "black PR" campaign ahead of the FIFA World Cup.

Meanwhile the Kremlin continued to consider how to respond to Mrs May after the largest expulsion of diplomats since the Cold War was announced on Wednesday.

The source of the nerve agent - which Britain says is Soviet-made Novichok - is unclear, as is the way it was administered.

Nauert, who was elevated to acting undersecretary by the firing of Steve Goldstein - himself collateral damage of the Tillerson dismissal - went on to say, "This latest action by Russian Federation fits into a pattern of behavior in which Russian Federation disregards the global rules-based order, undermines the sovereignty and security of countries worldwide, and attempts to subvert and discredit Western democratic institutions and processes".

She will also table amendments to British laws strengthening powers to impose financial and visa sanctions against individuals involved in human rights violations.

More: Who is Sergei Skripal?

She warned she would set out a "full range" of measures to be taken in response if there was no credible response from the Kremlin by midnight on Tuesday.

And Moscow is also plotting a response to the United States after Donald Trump's administration imposed sanctions on Russians allegedly involved in interfering with the 2016 U.S. elections and cyber-attacks.
