The UK is to expel four Russian diplomats in response to Moscow's refusal to extradite the prime suspect in the murder of Alexander Litvinenko.
Moscow condemned the UK's position as "immoral" and said the expulsions would have "serious consequences".
Russia's Foreign Ministry chief spokesman Mikhail Kamynin said: "London's position is immoral.
The Foreign Office said it had set out its position adding: "No retaliation on Russia's behalf is justified."
He said London had said it would not maintain contacts with Russia's Federal Security Service.
A full statement is expected from Moscow, which has warned Britain to expect "serious consequences".

The sooner the governments of the UK and the USA are thrown out and jailed the better. This Neo-Con garbage is the bane of the world.

The 4 Russian diplomats were thrown out because Russia refused to extradite an ex KGB officer who murdered (although not yet found guilty) a man using a radioactive substance. All Britain wants to do is give the man a trial in Britain which the Russians won't let happen (who is the aggressor here?). The stunt pulled by Russia could have killed British innocents and no assasination should be condoned by the British Government.
