Russia accuses Britain of using ‘outright lies’ to justify expulsion of Russian defence attache – Times of India

MOSCOW: Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday that Britain had decided to use “outright lies” to justify the restrictive measures announced earlier, including the expulsion of the Russian defence attache.
She was referring to a case in which Britain last month charged a man over alleged hostile state activity intended to benefit Russia, including by allegedly recruiting others for an arson attack on a Ukrainian-linked commercial property in London.
“We have repeatedly warned London that any unfriendly actions will receive an inevitable commensurate response. Our response will be tough and measured”, Zakharova said.
Britain said on Wednesday it would expel Russia’s defence attache, remove diplomatic status from some properties and limit the length of Russian diplomatic visas.
