UK Foreign Office details world events Russia is actively engaged in

As Theresa May vows to expel 23 Russian spies and freeze Russian assets for the alleged poisoning of the former Russian spy, Sergei Skripal, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange blasted UK Foreign Office's video about Russia claiming it was waging a "propaganda" war against Moscow. 

The video released by the UK Foreign Office details world events they alleged Russia is actively engaged in, the list includes:

The Litvinenko case,
Georgia's sovereignty,
Crimea's reunification
The cyber-attack on Germany's parliament,
The interfering in Montenegro elections
Airspace violations.

Assange said on Twitter:

UK Foreign Office gears up for a propaganda war against Russia with video listing alleged Russian bad behavior. Conspicuously absent: US elections.

According to RT: Russia said it would not respond to the ultimatum set by UK Prime Minister Theresa May, who demanded an explanation for the “poisoning” of the 66-year-old Skripal and his daughter. May's deadline expired on Wednesday at midnight.

Last week, Assange hit out at the UK government on his Twitter following Britain's official UN account (UK Mission to the United Nations) Tweeted:

 "A free and independent media fulfills a vital role in holding the powerful to account and giving a voice to the powerless," with a link to piece outlining the hypocrisy of the UK's "commitment to free speech".

Sputnik New reports: UK Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday announced the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats over the attempted murder of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal. London is blaming Moscow and gave them a week to leave. The Russian Embassy in London has called the move "unacceptable, unfounded and short-sighted."

The UK prime minister earlier on Monday stated that it was "highly likely" that Russia was engaged in the poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal in the British city of Salisbury.

After that, the Russian Embassy in the UK sent a note to the UK Foreign Office saying Russia was not involved in the poisoning of ex-spy Sergei Skripal and called for a joint investigation into the incident. Russian ex-spy Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious last week at a shopping center in Salisbury. Both of them remain in critical condition.
