After the brazen poisoning of a former spy, British Prime Minister Theresa May quickly pinned the blame on Russian Federation.

"France agrees with the United Kingdom that there is no other plausible explanation and reiterates its solidarity with its ally".

As the worldwide scandal gathers pace, Skripal and his daughter remain in critical condition after exposure to the Soviet-designed chemical Novichok on March 4 in the southwestern English city of Salisbury.

Police officer Nick Bailey, who initially attended to the Skripals, was also in hospital in a critical state, though conscious, but his health has improved and he is now in a stable condition, England's health service said on Friday.

British police appealed Saturday for witnesses who can help investigators reconstruct the Skripals' movements in the crucial hours before they were found unconscious.

In a similar move, Russia closed the British Council's regional offices in 2008 after relations nosedived over the poisoning of former Russian agent Alexander Litvinenko.

Bristow told reporters afterwards that Britain had only expelled the Russian diplomats after Moscow had failed to explain how the nerve toxin had got to Salisbury.

USA president Donald Trump said it looked as though the Russians were behind it.

May's office said President Donald Trump told the prime minister the US was "with the United Kingdom all the way".

"Everything leads us to believe that responsibility can be attributed to Russian Federation, and the work of the British services, shared with France's services, confirms it", he added.

Critics of the British government have long claimed that the U.K.is reluctant to act against Russia because London's property market and financial sector are magnets for billions in Russian money.

The gulf between Russia and Britain widened on Friday as they cranked up pressure over a nerve agent attack and a suspected murder in Britain that have deepened Western worries about alleged Russian meddling overseas. U.S. President Donald Trump said it looked as though the Russians were behind it.

It said the move was a response to Britain's "provocative actions" and "baseless accusations over the incident in Salisbury on March 4", referring to the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal with a nerve agent developed in the Soviet Union, which Britain has blamed on Russian Federation.

Russia will only cooperate with Britain on the investigation into last week's poisoning of an ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia if it receives samples of the nerve agent that is believed to have been used, Russia's foreign minister Lavrov said Tuesday.

Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a statement carried by Russian news agencies that Johnson's statement was "shocking and inexcusable breach of diplomatic propriety".

Britain is expelling 23 Russian diplomats and taking other steps against Russian interests as the two nations' relations plummet.

The diplomatic tension increased further Friday afternoon when London's Metropolitan Police said it is treating as murder the death of Nikolai Glushkov, a close associate of Putin opponent Boris Berezovsky - a one-time billionaire who was himself found hanging dead in 2013 in his house outside London.

Zakharova, speaking on Rossiya 1 state TV, also warned Britain's government that nobody should threaten a nuclear power, particularly in light of remarks made by Putin earlier this month.

The operation is being carried out under the framework of Turkey's rights based on global law, UN Security Council resolutions, its self-defense rights under the UN charter, and respect for Syria's territorial integrity, it said.

British Defence Secretary, Gavin Williamson, sparked particular outrage in Moscow with his blunt comment on Thursday that "Russia should go away, it should shut up".
