U.S. Sanctions Russia Over Nerve-Agent Attack in Britain

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Trump administration on Wednesday ordered new sanctions on Russia after determining that Moscow used a nerve agent in an attack on a former Soviet spy and his daughter who are now British citizens.

The use of chemical or biological weapons, which is a violation of international law, triggers sanctions under U.S. law. Washington had previously expelled roughly 60 Russia diplomats in response to a nerve-agent attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia Skripal.

“Following the use of a ‘Novichok’ nerve agent in an attempt to assassinate UK citizen Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia Skripal,” the United States has determined that Russia “has used chemical or biological weapons in violation of international law or has used lethal chemical or biological weapons against its own nationals,” the State Department said in a statement.
