British Prime Minister Theresa May will urge European Union leaders to unite and condemn Russia as leaders of the bloc's 28 nations meet in Brussels.

Theresa May To Seek Stand against Russia at EU Summit

May is seeking a strong statement against Russian President Vladimir Putin after the poisoning of a former Russian double agent and his daughter in England.

While Britain blames Moscow for the nerve-agent attack, Russia strongly denies the accusations.

In the wake of the attack Britain called Russia a growing threat to Western democracies.

On Monday EU foreign ministers expressed "unqualified solidarity" with Britain. But May is hoping for a more strongly worded statement that explicitly condemns Russia.

Brexit is also on the agenda at the two-day summit starting Thursday. Britain hopes the EU will sign off on the terms of the UK's departure next year and green-light talks on future relations.
