The Russian embassy accused the British authorities of "another blatant provocation" after allegedly raiding an Aeroflot flight at Borough Force Heathrow.
A embassy official proposed to return the jet that had arrived from Moscow on schedule. This trip was investigated in connection with the diplomatic crisis over the espionage poisoning of Salisbury.
On Friday, the dispute intensified after the Kremlin called on the UK to reduce the number of diplomats in Moscow to the same amount that Russia has in London.
It As ambassadors from more than 20 countries, they were called to the Foreign Ministry in Moscow to hear about the recent wave of retaliatory measures.
When the crisis set in, the Russian Embassy in London said British officials searched an Aeroflot jet that had landed at Heathrow in Moscow.
According to a embassy official, the Border Force and customs officials first attempted to search the aircraft without crew, even though the captain was eventually allowed to be present.
"Today we witness another obvious provocation by the British authorities," the official said.
Border guards and customs officers searched the plane carrying Aeroflot flights 2582/2583, Moscow ̵

The UK expelled 23 Russian diplomats from poisoning Mr. Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia with the nerve English : emagazine.credit-suisse.com/app/art … = 157 & nbsp; lang = de […] The British Ambassador to Moscow, Laurie Bristow, was summoned to the Foreign Ministry in Moscow on Friday
He told reporters: "It is important to keep in mind why this crisis has occurred in Moscow
] "It's the use of a chemical weapon on the streets of the United Kingdom that has threatened the lives of a number of people in my country.
"We have asked certain questions of the Russian state and have still not obtained sufficient answers."
Russia has a number of countries – including Ireland, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Finland, Poland, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Norway and Australia – with the same number sent home by diplomats, as they had ordered to leave their nations.
So far, more than 150 Russian diplomats, some of whom are suspected spies, have been sent home by British allies.
The Russian Embassy said Friday It insists on the right to look up Mrs. Skripal, 33. When she showed up on Thursday, she improved quickly.
She spent three weeks in critical condition after being exposed to Novichok on March 4th.
The father of Skripal remains in a critical but stable state in the hospital.
Next Friday afternoon, the Russian Embassy published a list of 27 questions it asked the British authorities about handling the scripts.
The list included demands to know the exact nature of their condition and how they were treated, and whether the practices of the British doctors "helped or hurt the script."
It also alleged that Mr. Skripal's niece had inquired about her uncle's health, but that she had been ignored by the Foreign Office, and wondered why no pictures or photographs of the Skripals
Scotland Yard believes that Mr. Skripal and his daughter, who visited him from Russia, came in contact with the deadly chemical in his apartment for the first time.
Detailed Forensic Investigation Tests revealed that the highest concentration of Novichok was found at the front door.
The extensive murder investigation in the town of Wiltshire continues, most recently by police blocking a children's playground in Montgomery Gardens.
Detectives said traces of the nerve agent were found in some of the other scenes where investigations had been conducted but in lower concentrations.
Efforts are now concentrating on and around the address, and the specialized teams will step back from a few other areas that have been investigated in recent weeks.
Mr. Skripal and his daughter have been patients at the Salisbury District Hospital since they were found unconscious on a park bench near The Maltings Mall nearly four weeks ago
Wiltshire Police Detective Sergeant Nick Bailey, also exposed to nerve agent , was released from hospital last week.
