Ministers prepare to announce sanctions • Health experts upgrade contamination warnings

Theresa May is on the verge of publicly blaming Russia for the attempted murder of Sergei and Yulia Skripal and ordering expulsions and sanctions against President Putin’s regime.

An announcement could come as early as today after a meeting of the government’s National Security Council at which ministers will be presented with the latest intelligence on the Salisbury attack.

Senior government sources suggested that the police and security services had established sufficient evidence to link Moscow with the nerve agent used to try to kill the former Russian double agent and his 33-year-old daughter.

Police and public health experts have upgraded their warnings about possible contamination, saying that hundreds of people who may have come into contact with the nerve agent should wash their clothes and other possessions.

2. We should be making it clear that we stand with May and our ally, Britain.

We should be working with them and all the European allies to sanction Russia and do something about this.
