Brussels (dpa) - NATO is cutting Russia‘s representation to the alliance by a third in response to the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Britain, says alliance chief Jens Stoltenberg.

The alliance will withdraw the accreditation of seven Russian staff and deny the pending accreditation of three others, Stoltenberg says, adding that this will reduce the overall size of the Russian mission to 20 people.

This shows that there are "costs and consequences" to Moscow‘s behaviour, Stoltenberg adds.

The decision comes after around two dozen countries have expelled more than 140 Russian diplomats over the Skripal affair.

The Kremlin has repeatedly denied any involvement and accused Britain of peddling anti-Russian propaganda.

Skripal, who was convicted in Russia of selling state secrets to Britain, and his daughter Yulia were poisoned in the city of Salisbury earlier this month. Both are in a critical but stable condition in hospital.
