Russia said Saturday it was halting the activities of the British Council across the country in response to Britain's measures over the poisoning of a former Russian double agent and his daughter.

"Due to the unregulated status of the British Council in Russia, its activity is halted," the foreign ministry said in a statement referring to Britain's international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities.
