The United Kingdom will expel 23 Russian diplomats for case of poisoned Russian ex-spy in England after Russia refused to give explanations about what happened, according to Prime Minister Theresa May.
May has given diplomats, identified as "undeclared intelligence officers," a week to leave country.
The international pressure on Russia to explain why a Russian nervous agent was used to try to kill Exagent Sergei Skripal and his daughter on British soil is on rise. This afternoon UN Security Council will hold an emergency meeting at request of Great Britain.

"The Allies agreed that attack constitutes a clear violation of international standards and agreements (on chemical weapons)," y said in a joint statement. And y asked Russia to answer questions of United Kingdom, one of members of Alliance.
