hill. equal and unbeaten record that has stood since one thousand nine hundred eighty. good to have you with us tonight the support that she had hoped for britain's prime minister. says it is the largest expulsion of russian diplomats in history the united states fifteen european union members and several other nations are kicking more than one hundred russian diplomats over the poisoning of a former russian spy on british soil russian tonight continuing to deny any involved. at the russian embassy in berlin there's little sign off what's going on
inside but behind the close curtains for diplomats are clearing their desks berlin says it's responding not just to the attack on former russian double agent sergey st paul in the u.k. but also to the cyber attack on the german government's computer network. it wasn't an easy decision for us to expel the russian diplomats but the facts and evidence point to russia. investigators believe that x. intelligence officer said pollin his daughter yulia were poisoned with novae chalk a soviet era nerve agent the two were found unconscious on a park bank in the southern english city of saulsbury on march fourth they remain critically ill in hospital at an e.u. summit in brussels last week all twenty eight member states come damn the attack the expulsion of russian diplomats by many e.u. countries is a coordinated action they say all the evidence points to russia. back in
london the british prime minister welcome the joint move 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 soulsby incident but moscow continues to insist it's in a sense it has to respond in kind and warn western governments that the expulsion of russian diplomats was a mistake. so how is russia wisely to respond i'm joined here in the studio by one as i don't mind he is a specialist in russian and european affairs and a nonresident fellow at the university of kills institute for security policy mr adelman is good to have you on the show britain's prime minister says that this is the biggest expulsion of purge of russian agents that the world has ever seen is it going to hurt russia well not really very much because what really what hurt them
that would be a neuro and of economic sanctions but not at all in the pipeline system so what we've been seeing that right there are there are several layers of sanctions that have already been slapped against russia and there is fergie in the country is it. up to a point. that is true those the economic sanctions which were from a god that after the annexation off of the crimea and the military intervention by russia and eastern europe in the is a new crime story these of course do hurt but what has been now been taken this is not to go into military machine it's over because in the russians the we're also hearing that there's going to be more tit for tat reactions to this with . with putin it seems like now being against the world to see it to see care not not against the world because he has fairly good directions but china directions with turkey have been mended he is cooperating or turkey and iran in syria
so you can't remake the point to that they're totally isolated is a really a question of having a ready to ratchet up of the relations with. the european union and with united states in this too do you think he was caught off guard by these explosions today because we've never seen one at this level against russia before well i don't think he expected something to happen but when you look at it to repeat the point when you look at of course these are sixty so-called diplomats of course the. intelligence operatives that made curtail a bit to their operations in the united states but those are for people who are being chucked out of germany and the one person that's the checked out out of denmark and the joint symbolic well as israel again but what what actually is there
is in fact as though in some consequence which is not to be neglected it is actually by raising the level of tension between russia and the west meaning europe and united states this will discourage people from investing in russia so the indirect. yeah exactly and he could be should it shooting himself in the foot and by pursuing this policy. russia's top diplomat in the u.s. today saying that what we're seeing today is a major blow to us russian relations just take a listen to part of what he unsaid. it would she would me a city new english that i me to care what the united states of america is doing today that destroying what little remained of us russian ties machine you know. i would add that all the responsibility for ruining russian american relations is
on the united states of america and i say you know the father i'm a dick i mean there's lots of extremes there right destroying relations all the blame is on the u.s. can we talk about this really now being the new cole who well in rhetoric yes it is true but what is actually a note is an interesting is that the responsibility for the a serious deterioration of relations between russia and the united states but also we know russia and europe is clearly put two states into the west in general this isn't. a correct portrayal of what has happened because one has to go back to two thousand and twelve to the beginning of the third term by putting us president who has fled clear that day he launched a vicious anti western a campaign with the nationalist underpinnings this is really the basis lies for the
deterioration of relations and not what you claim but obviously we will be hard pressed if we ever get him to admit that mr han is out of might we appreciate you coming on the seven sharing their insights thank you. but i'd spain's most wanted fugitive is back in jail as he waits to hear whether in german court will allow him to be extradited how long separatist leader carlos pushed him off was detained on sunday while traveling through germany to belgium where he's been in self-imposed exile he's wanted by spanish authorities over his role in catalonia as unauthorized independence. pushed the most attention has ignited anger in catalonia supporters of the former leader brought traffic to a standstill near the region's border with the rest of spain. despite the protests madrid isn't backing down in pursuit of its most wanted man.
