Britain deployed specialist troops Friday to remove potentially contaminated objects from the English city where a Russian former double agent and his daughter were poisoned with a nerve agent.Britain's Interior Minister Amber Rudd, who visited Salisbury Friday, said they were both still in a serious condition, five days after collapsing.Britain has said it will respond robustly if evidence shows Russia was behind the attempted murder.Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov dismissed Britain's warnings of retaliation as propaganda and nothing serious.Mathieu Boulegue, a research fellow in the Russia and Eurasia Program at London's Chatham House think tank, Britain has multiple options for a response if Russia is proven to be behind the attack.Boulegue said a particularly worrying aspect of the attack, if it was indeed ordered by the Kremlin, was that it meant the authorities were prioritizing delivery of a stark warning message to turncoats over bilateral relations with Britain.
