The British Council on Saturday voiced deep disappointment after Moscow halted its activities in Russia in tit-for-tat measures announced following the poisoning of a former double agent on British soil.

"We are profoundly disappointed at this development," the group said in a statement. "It is our view that when political or diplomatic relations become difficult, cultural relations and educational opportunities are vital to maintain on-going dialogue between people and institutions."
