🇷🇺 How will a divided west tackle a resurgent Russia? - Inside Story

The rhetoric of the Cold War appears to be back - with strong words at the UN Security Council and the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats from Britain.

The US, France and Germany along with the UK have issued a joint statement blaming Moscow for the poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the UK.

The apparent unity in the West though comes at a time of friction over Brexit and an unpredictable White House.

Russia says the accusations are 'insane' - and that Britain is refusing to cooperate with Moscow in the investigation of the incident.

Is there a rush to judgment by western powers on Russia?
