UK PM May will push for enhanced sanctions against Russia

LONDON - British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday she would push for enhanced sanctions against Russia at a summit of EU leaders later this month.

 

"I will be pressing to ensure that we maintain sanctions against Russia," May told parliament. "Indeed, I think there are some areas where we should be enhancing that sanctions regime."

 

Relations between London and Moscow hit a post-Cold War low earlier this year after the poisoning of a former Russian spy in an English city that Britain blamed on Russia.
