Russia's Foreign Ministry spokeswomen Maria Zakharova on Saturday said the nerve agent had never been developed in the Soviet Union or Russian Federation and said it was most likely from somewhere in western Europe.

The move comes in retaliation for Britain's decision to remove 23 Russians - who Prime Minister Theresa May said were spies working under diplomatic cover.

Bristow told reporters: "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 global rules-based system on which all countries, including Russian Federation, depend for their safety and security", according to The Associated Press.

Russian Federation ordered the expulsion of 23 British diplomats in retaliation for United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May's ouster of 23 Kremlin envoys over the nerve-agent poisoning near London of a former spy and his daughter.

On Wednesday, May called the attack a "barbaric act" and announced retaliatory measures including: the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats she called "undeclared intelligence officers"; uninviting Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to visit the United Kingdom; freezing certain Russian government assets in the United Kingdom; and suspending "high-level" diplomatic contacts.

"It is Russian Federation that is in flagrant breach of worldwide law and the Chemical Weapons Convention".

Russian Federation ordered a halt to high-level meetings with the United Kingdom and prepared Friday to expel British diplomats. Britain, the United States, Germany and France jointly called on Russian Federation on Thursday to explain the attack.

Sergei Skripal, a former Russian intelligence officer, and his 33-year-old daughter Yulia Skripal were found unconscious on a bench at a shopping center in Salisbury, Wiltshire last week, and remain still in critical condition, according to reports. A kind of response the Prime Minister said she had anticipated.

The national security council will meet early next week to consider the "next steps". U.K. Ambassador Laurie Bristow was summoned to the ministry and told that the actions are "in response to the provocative actions of the British side and the unsubstantiated accusations" against Russian Federation, the ministry said.

"Ambassador expressed gratitude to his colleagues for their contribution to the work of the Embassy and noted that for those who are returning to Russian Federation one period in their career is ending and another one is starting".

Counter-terrorism police have also renewed their appeal for sightings of Mr Skripal's burgundy BMW 320D saloon auto, registration HD09 WAO, in Salisbury on the morning of March 4.

Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said: "We are learning more about Sergei and Yulia's movements but we need to be clearer around their exact movements on the morning of the incident".
