Il congelamento dei beni di alcuni oligarchi russi e l’espulsione di diplomatici. Sono queste le misure che potrebbero essere adottate dal governo di Theresa May in risposta all’avvelenamento a Salisbury dell’ex spia russa Sergey Sripal e di sua figlia Yulia. Secondo le indiscrezioni potrebbero anche essere adottate misure restrittive per i media russi diffusi nel regno Unito, ma non è neppure escluso il boicottaggio da parte di Londra del prossimo mondiale di calcio in Russia. Lunedì May aveva dato 48 ore di tempo alle autorità russe per fornire spiegazioni dell’impiego del materiale tossico di fabbricazione russa usato a Salisbury ritenendo altamente probabile il coinvolgimento di Mosca nell’accaduto.

Freezing of assets of Russian oligarchs and expulsion of a number of Russia’s diplomats are the most likely options for the United Kingdom to respond to the poisoning of former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal in Salisbury, a source in the UK parliament told Sputnik. Commenting on possible restrictive measures against the RT, the source said they were unlikely as such a decision should be made upon the identification of specific violations by the broadcaster. As for UK officials boycotting the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, the source said it could take place but would not have a significant effect. On Monday, UK Prime Minister Theresa May said that it was “highly likely” that Russia was responsible for the recent attack on Skripal, since the substance used to poison Skripal and his daughter Yulia was identified as a Novichok class, military-grade nerve agent developed in Russia. In an ultimatum to Russia, May demanded an explanation for the poisoning by the end of Tuesday and threatened to apply harsh response measures.
