Relations between London and Moscow deteriorated sharply because of the assassination in Salisbury on former intelligence officer Sergei Skripal.

14 March, Prime Minister of Britain, Theresa may, announced the expulsion of Russian diplomats 23, and the suspension of the planned bilateral contacts with Russia. The Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Moscow will resort to respond in kind.

On March 18 presidential election, Putin, according to preliminary data, gained 76,66% of the vote. While interacting with reporters at his campaign headquarters the head of the Kremlin has called “utter nonsense” suggestions that Russia was involved in the assassination Skripal.
