Russia said Wednesday it would respond in kind to the mass expulsion of Russian diplomats by the West over the poisoning of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal in the English city of Salisbury. What began as a row between London and Moscow after Britain accused Russia of using a nerve agent to poison Skripal and his daughter has now snowballed into an international chorus of rebuke for the Kremlin, with even some friendly governments ejecting Russian diplomats.The biggest demarche came from the United States, which said Monday it was expelling 60 Russian diplomats.In total, more than 100 Russian diplomats are to be sent home from states ranging from Denmark to Australia, the biggest Western expulsion of Russian diplomats since the height of the Cold War.In Australia, whose government said Tuesday it would expel two diplomats, the Russian ambassador Grigory Loginov told reporters the world will enter into a "Cold War situation" if the West persists with its bias against Russia.
