Russian Federation says Britain should prove Skripals not being held hostage

Russian Federation says Britain should prove Skripals not being held hostage

Britain last night pointed the finger directly at Moscow over the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter.

"We will now work closely with our partners to clarify grotesque use of this weapon and convene OPCW council to discuss next steps", Johnson said Thursday through a statement collected by Reuters.

"The programme subsequently included investigation of ways of delivering nerve agents, including by application to door handles".

Specialists investigating the incident have found the highest confrontation of the military-grade agent on the front door of Mr Sergei's Salisbury home.

Britain said Thursday that an worldwide chemical weapons monitoring organization's report strongly bolsters the case for Kremlin guilt in last month's poisoning of onetime spy Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter, Yulia, 33. In the 2000s, Sedwill said Russian Federation had trained military personnel in using these weapons, including on door handles, and Russian Federation "has a proven record of conducting state-sponsored assassination".

"It is highly likely that the Russian intelligence services view at least some of its defectors as legitimate targets for assassination", he said. 'It is highly likely that Novichoks were developed to prevent detection by the West and to circumvent global chemical weapons controls, ' Mr Sedwill said. "So far, we doubt it much", an embassy statement said.




Russia, which denies it was behind the attack in Salisbury, called the allegations an "anti-Russian campaign". A police officer, Detective Sgt. Nick Bailey, who responded to the scene of the assault, was also hospitalized but has since been discharged.

Asked if Russian Federation would open up the Shikhany institute for an OPCW inspection, Yakovenko said Russian Federation didn't produce or stock Novichok "so why should we invite [inspectors] because our official position is like that?"

Russian Federation denies the British claims about Novichok, saying that it completed the destruction of all its Soviet-era chemical weapons arsenals past year under global oversight.

The analyses thus confirm that neurotoxic used in attack on Russian ex-spy Sergey Skripal and his daughter was produced in Russia, although in two-page communiqué name of that country does not appear.

She also said she would give interviews to the media in time, but asked the press to have patience while she recovers.

Russian channel one state television revels in its declaration that the OPCW did not report on the nerve agent origin but then spins its story in a different direction sowing doubt that Yulia Skripal's statement stating she did not want contact with the Russian embassy was written by her and speculating that she is being held in some secret place against her will.
