Is World War 3 about to be sparked between the West and Russia following the expulsion of over 100 Russian diplomats after the country was blamed for the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, think tank boss Andrey Kortunov has warned that it’s likely.

Speaking on the Today programme, Mr Kortunov stated: “By cutting these channel of communication, we increase risks of miscalculation….. Maybe not a clear interpretation of intentions of the other side.
