The United States and its European allies are expelling dozens of Russian diplomats in a coordinated response to the poisoning of a former Russian spy in the UK, BBC reported Monday.

It is said to be the largest collective expulsion of Russian intelligence officers in history.

BBC said more than 20 countries have aligned with the UK, expelling more than 100 diplomats. Russia vowed to retaliate to the “provocative gesture”.

According to the BBC, Russia denies any role in the attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, in Salisbury, southern England. The pair remain in a critical but stable condition in hospital.
