Expelled Russian diplomats have left the country’s embassy in London. It is part of sanctions imposed by UK PM Theresa May last week following claims of Moscow’s involvement in the poisoning of ex-double agent Sergei Skripal.

A video provided by the Ruptly news agency shows several vehicles leaving the territory of the diplomatic mission on Tuesday. Earlier, minibuses were captured on camera entering the compound.

Last week, London ordered 23 Russian diplomats to leave the UK by March 20. According to the country’s envoy, Alexander Yakovenko, the family members of the expelled staffers are also being forced to leave Britain.
