Russia will expel British diplomats in retaliation for the expulsion of 23 staff from Moscow’s mission to London over the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter on U.K. territory, the Russian foreign minister was quoted as saying on Thursday.

The expulsions will happen “soon,” according to a report by RIA news agency quoting Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. It was not clear how many U.K. diplomats would be involved.

British Prime Minister Theresa May and key foreign allies have blamed Russia for the poison attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in the English town of Salisbury. They are in critical condition in hospital.
