Russia threatens to ban all UK journalists if RT is stripped of its licence by Ofcom over nerve agent attack

Russia today threatened to ban all UK journalists from working in the country if RT loses its licence to broadcast in Britain.

The threat came after the Kremlin was warned it could be stripped of its right to air in Britain if the Government officially blames Moscow for the nerve agent attack in Salisbury.

Ofcom wrote to RT – formerly known as Russia Today – this morning to explain its licence would be reviewed if ministers confirm Theresa May’s announcement it was ‘highly likely’ Kremlin agents were behind the attack on Sergei Skripal.
