Russian Federation warns 'ruining World Cup' could be motive in spy poison attack

Russia is preparing to carry out tests of the'Satan 2 nuclear missile which can carry 16 warheads and evade all missile defences according to the Kremlin

The United States said Wednesday that Russia was responsible for a nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy in England, and urged the UN Security Council to hold Moscow accountable.

Former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found in a serious condition in the English city of Salisbury on March 4.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May said the chemical used in the attack had been identified as part of a group of nerve agents developed by Russian Federation known as Novichok.

"The use of nerve agents under any circumstances is unacceptable and its use by a state would constitute a serious violation of global law", said a spokesman for the United Nations chief.

The United States said Wednesday that Russian Federation was "responsible" for the nerve agent attack and urged the UN Security Council to hold Moscow accountable.

Ms May also said London had notified the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons about the use of the nerve agent.

Russian Federation is expected to take retaliatory measures after Britain's expulsion of the diplomats soon, and a Kremlin spokesman said Thursday that President Vladimir Putin was to determine those measures personally.

Earlier this week, outgoing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called the nerve agent attack "a really egregious act" that appears to have "clearly" come from Russian Federation.

"That is very sad", Mr Trump said about the incident, adding that it was "something that should never, ever happen and we're taking it very seriously".

On Wednesday May announced the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats from the United Kingdom and a range of other measures to crack down on "corrupt elites", including new measures to combat spying.

It said it is "obvious that by using unilateral and non-transparent methods of investigation of this case that British authorities had once again tried to unleash an anti-Russian campaign". A "very sad situation" that the U.S. was taking "very seriously".

Maria Zakharova said she wanted to comment on "the statements made by the prime minister of Britain in parliament with completely insane accusations towards the Russian Federation, our entire country, our entire people".

Russian Federation has grown distrustful of the watchdog in connection with the suspected use of chemical weapons in Syria.

"The United States stands in solidarity with its closest ally, the United Kingdom", press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

Russia's ambassador in London, Alexander Yakovenko, said Britain's actions were "absolutely unacceptable" and "a provocation".
