Britain: EU backs Britain in wake of Russian spy poisoning - by Maxime Schl

Senior EU officials expressed their support for the U.K. in its standoff with Russia after Prime Minister Theresa May said it was “highly likely” Moscow was behind the attempted murders of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the English town of Salisbury.

The show of support from the Continent, just as London and Brussels are negotiating Britain’s exit from the European Union, should bolster May in her response to one of the most difficult foreign policy challenges of her leadership.

The pro-Brexit foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, said on Tuesday he was “very encouraged so far by the strength of the support that we are getting,” adding that he had spoken to French President Emmanuel Macron, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel and U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, according to the Guardian.

Note EU-Digest: Interesting fact is after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson condemned the Russian poisoning of one of their former spies in Britain this Monday March 12, he was fired yesterday March 13.
