BRUSSELS - European Council President Donald Tusk, one of the three top European Union officials, said on Wednesday he did not congratulate Russian President Vladimir Putin on his "reappointment" because of the Salisbury nerve agent attack.

"After the Salisbury attack, I'm not in the mood to celebrate President Putin's reappointment," Tusk told reporters, referring what London says was the poisoning of a former Russian spy in England directed by Moscow.
