Britain’s foreign office summoned Friday Russia’s ambassador in London over accusations Moscow “orchestrated malign activity on UK soil”, hours after prosecutors said a Briton had been charged with acting “for the benefit of the Russian state”.

“The UK remains deeply concerned by allegations of Russian orchestrated malign activity on UK soil, as well as the wider reported pattern of behaviour we are witnessing on the part of the Russian Federation to sponsor such activity on the territory of other, sovereign states,” a foreign office spokesperson said.
