The British government has welcomed the move.
"The strong international response to the use of a chemical weapon on the streets of Salisbury sends an unequivocal message to Russia that its provocative, reckless behaviour will not go unchallenged," a UK foreign office statement said.
The Russian embassy to the US hit back on Thursday morning, criticising what it called "far-fetched accusations" from the US that Russia was behind the attack.
Russia had become "accustomed to not hearing any facts or evidence", it said, adding: "We continue to strongly stand for an open and transparent investigation of the crime committed in Salisbury."
