The Treasury Department said the sanctions were also meant to counter destructive cyber attacks including the NotPetya attack that cost billions of dollars in damage across Europe, Asia and the US.

"But we will always do what is necessary to defend ourselves, our allies, and our values against an attack of this sort, which is an attack not only on the United Kingdom, but upon the worldwide rules-based system, on which all countries, all countries including Russian Federation, depend for their safety and security".

A British policeman was also poisoned when he went to help them and remains in a serious but stable condition.

Putin, a former KGB spy, who is poised to win a fourth term in an election on Sunday, has so far only said publicly that Britain should get to the bottom of what has happened.

"Russia's response doesn't change the facts of the matter - the attempted assassination of two people on British soil, for which there is no alternative conclusion other than that the Russian State was culpable", it said in a statement.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, whose response to the attack has led to criticism from some on his backbenches, said "the evidence points towards Russia" being responsible - but the possibility of gangsters being behind the attack rather than the Kremlin could not be excluded.

Russian Federation declared roughly 40,000 tonnes of chemical weapons to the OPCW in the 1990s.

NAN reports that British foreign minister Boris Johnson suggested on Thursday that corrupt Russians who owe their wealth to their ties with President Vladimir Putin could be targeted by British police in retaliation for a nerve attack on a Russian ex-spy.

United States must expedite steps for N. Korea talks despite top diplomat change
The entire USA , including major cities such as NY and Washington, D.C., are potentially within the range of the latest weapon. Following a request from Kim Jong Un , chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, Trump has agreed to meet with Kim by May.

Mr Corbyn said that Mrs May was right on Monday to identify two possibilities for the source of the nerve agent - either Russian Federation authorised the attack or had lost control of the Novichok substance.

Russian Federation has demanded that Britain give Moscow access to samples of the nerve agent used on Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, speaking to CNN, slammed that remark. Russian Federation has asked to be allowed to examine the evidence and claims that so far it has not been allowed to do so. There's no evidence at this stage that his death and the attack on the Skripals are linked, it said.

"They sought to launch an active dialogue with the officials in London ..."

Russian investigators offered some cooperation to British authorities after the 2006 London murder of ex-KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko too.

Skripal, a former colonel in the GRU who betrayed dozens of Russian agents to British intelligence, and his daughter have been critically ill since March 4, when they were found unconscious on a bench.

A United Kingdom inquiry found that two Russian agents poisoned Litvinenko at a London hotel bar in 2006 by spiking his tea with highly radioactive polonium-210, and that Putin "probably approved" Litvinenko's killing.

The war of words between Moscow and London continued Friday, with Lavrov lashing back at British Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson for saying Russian Federation "should go away and shut up". He was granted refuge in the UK after a high-profile spy exchange between the United States and Russian Federation in 2010.
