Now the UK has joined in - following the poisoning of former MI6 agent, Sergei Skripal in Salisbury, the UK government has already condemned Russia, although the ongoing police investigation could take months.

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
