U.S. President Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May agreed Tuesday that Russia must provide "unambiguous answers" after London gave Moscow until midnight to explain how a Soviet-era nerve weapon was used against a former Russian double agent. May, who said Monday that it was "highly likely" that Russia was behind the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter, also won support from Britain's main European allies and the European Union, which denounced the attack as "shocking" and offered help to track down those responsible.Russia, however, signaled there was little likelihood that it would respond adequately to London's call for an explanation by Wednesday.Skripal, a former officer with Russian military intelligence, betrayed dozens of Russian agents to British intelligence before being arrested in Moscow and jailed in 2006 .If no satisfactory Russian response is received by midnight London time May is likely to outline Britain's response in Parliament Wednesday.This report drew a swift response from Russia.
