reykjavik - Iceland also takes action against Russia because of the Skripal affair. Icelandic leaders are boycotting the World Cup in Russia this summer, for which the national team has been able to qualify for the first time.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the island state said that temporarily no bilateral consultations with the Russians will take place at a high level. 'As a result, Icelandic leaders will not be present this summer at the FIFA World Championship in Russia,' said the department.

The country, which has more than 300,000 inhabitants, thinks that the Russian reaction to the poisoning of the former double spy and his daughter leaves something to be desired. 'Russia had to come up with a credible explanation of how a nerve gas originally produced in Soviet laboratories could be used in an attack on civilians in the United Kingdom. '
