Daily briefing.

Ecuador has cut off WikiLeaks' founder Julian Assange's Internet access, saying he violated a written promise not to do things that would damage Ecuador's international relations while he enjoyed asylum in their London embassy. They yanked Assange's connection because of his recent tweeting in Russia's interest and against Britain's in the ongoing matter of the Salisbury nerve agent attacks.

Russia has promised to retaliate in response to the more than twenty-five countries who have taken diplomatic measures to protest the Salisbury assassination attempts, but hasn't so far done so. Kremlin representatives say they reserve the right to do so at "some appropriate time." 

The retaliation that most concerns Western countries, particularly the UK and the US, is the prospect of Russia executing a cyberattack against electrical power grids that's been long under preparation.
