Russia to ban all UK media if Britain blocks RT

Russia's Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova warned on Tuesday that no British media outlet will be allowed to work in Russia in case RT is banned from broadcasting in the United Kingdom.

"I can tell you right now that not a single British media outlet will be working in our country if they shut RT down," Zakharova told the Rossiya 1 TV channel.

Tensions between the two countries have risen over the past few days after Britain accused Russia of being behind the poisoning of former spy Sergey Skripal. In the interview with Rossiya 1, Zakharova claimed UK Prime Minister Theresa May "has no actual fact in her hands" regarding the case.
