Relations between Britain and Russia plunged Wednesday to a chilly level not seen since the Cold War as British Prime Minister Theresa May expelled 23 diplomats, severed high-level contacts and vowed both open and covert action against Kremlin meddling after the poisoning of a former spy.Russia said it would respond soon to what it called Britain's "crude" and "hostile" actions.May told the House of Commons that 23 Russians diplomats who have been identified as undeclared intelligence officers have a week to leave Britain.May also said Britain would clamp down on murky Russian money and strengthen its powers to impose sanctions on abusers of human rights, though she gave few details.It said Britain's "hostile measures" were "an unprecedentedly crude provocation".
