say that moscow was behind the poisoning the kremlin denies. moscow hit back with a simple tit for tat sixty u.s. diplomats are to be expelled from russia matching the sixty russian diplomats thrown out by the u.s. . the retaliation against other countries will also be reciprocal that's in terms of the number of diplomats expelled from each country. usually it is that he's content seoul for the moment. for germany that's for diplomats who will be sent home some observers feared harsher measures after a spokeswoman for the russian foreign ministry the immanently denied accusations that moscow was behind the swivels poisoning she suggested britain had failed to protect the safety of russian citizens there. whether these measures will stop the diplomatic escalation may partly depend on decisions made here in the kremlin. or i
want to go now to europe our moscow bureau chief good evening to you so why did moscow choose the consulate in st petersburg to close. some because there is a second capital of russia the u.s. consulate there is big and into the fact that it now has to close is obviously of great symbolic importance bigger than the consulate and because brooke is only the consulate in moscow but if you close the consulate in moscow then you really cut any diplomatic relation between the u.s. and russia and you'll reach the real and of all. and the u.s. we know was not the only country to expel russian diplomats so what can washington's allies now expect. well according to his russian foreign minister it will be
a batch of countermeasures russia is going to take first told diplomats from all countries that expelled the russian diplomats who will also be expelled from russia but mr lavrov said that russia will not only provide a so-called to mirror response to west steps but even more than event that means the kremlin actually will continue fighting with the west without rules old of its own rules and the diplomatic but court will not stop it so what measures could come next the b.b.c. bureau in moscow may also be shoot down our d.w.b. could be declared for an adjutant we don't want to help for that but the theoretically that's even possible after all they know that the germany has expelled for russian diplomats as well theoretically it would also be possible to go through the go to institute the german cultural institution which has several branches in russia or the institute hansei the french culture the situation yeah there are so many options right now for the russians and at the heart of this of
course are the these allegations of a chemical weapons attack on british soil that was conducted or at least known about by the kremlin what is the kremlin doing to shed light on this very and prove that britain is wrong. well russia wants to see effects was that as long as there are no facts on the table that clearly show with russian guilt nobody should be accused russian but so far russia hasn't provided any evidence that it wasn't involved usually the presumption of innocence applies in these cases however many speak about that the guilty presumption too many things indicate that russia might be involved is quite possible isn't the russian newspaper video misty has recently even published a whole list of cases in which russian spies were killed abroad by russia this list begins in nineteen twenty seven that it's an implication is a few years ago london was just one of many other cases in history but once again
brant from the beginning moscow understood the whole thing as a diplomatic declaration of war towards russia russia insists that the u.k. has no evidence that is indeed the dilemma that london is in all right our moscow bureau chief you're a shadow on the story for us tonight from there yuri thank you very much we want to take the story now to the u.s. capital washington d.c. our correspondent claire richardson is there working that angle of the story for us good evening to you clay or so was the u.s. government expecting what happened today brant it's hard to imagine that they would not expect some sort of retaliation as soon as the white house announced that it was expelling russian diplomats we heard from the russian foreign minister that there would be some kind of retaliation what's interesting here is that this is exactly tit for tat we're seeing sixty diplomats expelled in exchange for the sixty that the u.s. kicked off they've also been given a week to pack their bags and get out of the country and it makes sense that we're
seeing a tough response from russia because this was the toughest action we've seen from the trump administration to date when it comes to taking a tough stance on russia claire richardson on the story for us tonight in washington player thank you very much. here are some of the other stories now that are making headlines around the world health officials in the u.k. say screwballs daughter is now responding well to treatment yulia screwball and her father sergei are in the hospital in the english city of solsbury where they were found unconscious earlier this month after being poisoned with a nerve agents that poisoning sparked the current well between britain and russia north and south korea will hold their first summit in more than a decade on april twenty seventh south korean officials made the announcement after high level talks with north korea their agenda will focus on denuclearization and improving relations between the two countries france's
