Russia’s UN ambassador has requested the United Nations Security Council convene a special meeting for Thursday afternoon amid an ongoing diplomatic feud with the UK that began in an English country town and has spread to include London’s allies around the world.

A month after former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned in the British town of Salisbury, the United Kingdom and Russia remain locked in battle over who to blame.
UK Prime Minister Theresa May has said it was “highly likely” the attack was ordered by the Russian government, but the Kremlin has repeatedly denied the accusation. At one point, the Russians suggested the United Kingdom itself might have been involved in the poisoning.
