London (dpa) - The midnight Tuesday deadline for Russia to give a response to a British ultimatum over the poisoning of a former double agent in the English city of Salisbury has passed.

Moscow had already said it would not respond unless Britain sent it samples of the nerve toxin used to attack ex-spy Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, who remain critically ill in hospital.

British Prime Minister Theresa May had demanded that Moscow explain the presence in Britain of the rare Novichok-type nerve agent believed to have been developed by Russia.

She promised to discuss potential action against Moscow with her government "should there be no credible response." It was not clear what those measure would be but British media reported that a cyber attack could be among them.

She is to host a meeting of the national security council on Wednesday morning.

Prior to the passing of the deadline, the Russian embassy posted a series of tweets saying it had requested an explanation from the British Foreign Office "on the cyber attack threats heard at Parliament and in the media."

It reiterated its rejection of responsibility for the March 4 attack and said, "Those calling for Russian diplomats‘ expulsion don‘t care about Global Britain and its diplomats in Moscow."

Germany and France have also condemned the attack and May‘s office on Tuesday said that US President Donald Trump had told the prime minister that Washington was "with the UK all the way," and that Moscow must provide unambiguous answers as to how this nerve agent came to be used."
