a night of part of the time. retirees are voting come because in egypt's presidential election president how sisi opens up to went to so many view the photo as a shop for signs of tanakh will be closely watched. all. the. time for a welcome to the program. britain's prime minister says it's the largest expulsion of russian intelligence officers in history united states canada ukraine and fourteen e.u. countries are expelling more than one hundred russian intelligence officers over the poisoning of a former spy in britain so they're going to cripple at least dogs that remain in critical condition in hospital after being exposed to a nerve agent meaning the city of souls but earlier this month britain blames moscow theater russia denies involvement british prime minister to resign may
presented her evidence of russian involvement to european allies last week in the last few minutes she has welcomed the coordinated response which she says sends a strong signal to moscow day eighteen countries have announced their intention to expel more than one hundred russian intelligence officers probably. this includes fifteen e.u. member states as well as the united states canada and the ukraine and this is the largest collective expulsion of russian intelligence offices in history. i have found great solidarity from our friends and partners in the e.u. north america and nato and beyond over the past three weeks as we have confronted the aftermath of the salzburg incident and let's get responses from muslim and young here in clare richardson in washington the major had got storage in moscow as well as ben we got in brussels that welcome all we'll start with you simon young and then what is germany been saying about the four diplomats that it is to expel.
well fool the german government has told the russian embassy here in berlin that four of its people of course a leave within the next seven days and it says that this is intended as a strong signal of solidarity with the united kingdom and of the determination that an attack on germany's partners and allies cannot go without a response at the same time the german government has stressed that it remains open for dialogue with moscow it doesn't want to cut off old toys and it's also linked to this action interestingly with cyber attacks which the german government believes have been carried out against german government computer systems sourced in russia as it says so a comprehensive response very much in line with what the british government has been asking for so for diplomats gone from germany sixty going from the united states a clear richardson what's washington saying well phil this is the toughest action
the trump administration has taken against russia and a major turn from what we've seen up until this point trungpa been criticized of course for not being tough enough on russia and in fact just last week if you'll remember he called out america tend to congratulate him on his election victory despite widespread claims of fraud now it has announced this has not announced this expulsion himself but the white house released a statement today accusing russia of destabilizing activities around the world and they're saying that this move is meant to make it harder for russia to spy on americans it's of course important to remember that this is not the first time we've seen the u.s. sent home suspected russian spies obama in late two thousand and sixteen expelled thirty five russians in response to meddling in the u.s. elections but this is certainly the biggest expulsion we've seen it since the mid eighty's when president reagan expelled almost the same number as we're seeing today to moscow than drugs so rich the kremlin says this is a provocative gesture what else they say. well
product of gesture in the sense that russia russia's point is still russia's part of us still we have nothing to do with souls very so there's no reason for punishing us because foreign ministry condemned the expulsion of the diplomats they said this is an unfriendly act and will not go without consequences from and spokesman dmitri peskov said that president putin would make the final decision about how moscow is going to respond so we will see some sort of tit for tat in the days to come if germany expels for russian diplomats moscow is going to do the same and they will definitely expel more americans after washington is kicking out more than sixty russian diplomats that being said moscow has the konami interests germany and the e.u. are still very important trade partners so i don't think that russia is interested
right now in making a bad situation worse but really gets it in brussels what do we learn from the fact that only hof of a you countries have backed this move. that means of the other is still in doubt if these measures are really necessary and really effective and that's why e.u. council president on interest could only say that is highly likely that russia is behind the attacks with the nerve agent there is for him no other plausible explanation but there's still no real evidence for some of the countries nevertheless this is the biggest concerted effort diplomatic effort the u.s. undertaken in such a case and this is also a show of solidarity for the british despite the fact that britain is leaving the european union in the brics it pro says and it's not excluded that there's still more to come sanctions against russia could be prepared in the next weeks do we get that in brussels thank you may drag us origin claridge's and simon young thank you
