Debate Map on the UK/Russia Dispute

This debate map sets out international law arguments stemming from the UK Government’s claim that the incident in Salisbury on 4 March 2018 “represents an unlawful use of force by the Russian state against the United Kingdom”. It is here acknowledged that the government of the Russian Federation does not accept claims of its involvement and the outline below should not be seen as taking a view on the facts asserted by either side.

Explore the debate map, for the latest legal arguments and discussions on the topic.
