UK: Vehicles in and out of London Russian embassy after expulsion order

Vehicles believed to carry expelled Russian diplomats were seen entering and leaving the Russian embassy compound in London on Tuesday.

Last week, UK Prime Minister Theresa May ordered the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats, claiming that it was "highly likely" that Russian government was involved in Skripal's poisoning, adding that Moscow was either "responsible" for the "attempted murder" of Skripal and his daughter Yulia or was negligent in its handling of "weapons-grade nerve agents."

The Russian government has denied allegations of its involvement. In a tit-for-tat move, Moscow said that it would expel 23 UK diplomats and shut down the British Council in Russia.

Skripal and his 33-year-old daughter are in critical condition in Salisbury District Hospital after being found unconscious on a park bench on March 4. According to British police the matter is treated as attempted murder by a nerve agent.

The 66-year-old former Russian military intelligence officer was convicted in Russia of supplying MI6 with Russian state secrets. Part way through his jail term, in 2010, he was involved in a spy swap and given refuge in the UK.
