Russian Federation to expel United Kingdom diplomats in response

Pic: ReutersMOSCOW: A Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman on Thursday described allegations by British Prime Minister Theresa May that Russia was to blame for the nerve agent poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal as insane.

Specialist officers in protective suits prepare to secure the police forensic tent that had been blown over by the wind and is covering the bench where Sergei Skripal was found critically with his daughter on March 4 and were taken to hospital sparking a major incident, in Salisbury on March 8, 2018 in Wiltshire, England.

British police said there is no apparent link to the attack on Glushkov and the poisoning of the Skripals. "But to all appearances, they had no real concerns: they went to lunch and they went to a pub".

"We have never encountered this level of discussion on the global stage", Peskov told reporters.

"What happened - the deployment of a military-grade nerve agent of a type developed by the Soviet Union, the first offensive use of such an agent since World War Two - was an enormous, appalling event", said government spokesman Steffen Seibert.

Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov was quoted by Russian news agencies as calling Johnson's statement a "shocking and inexcusable breach of diplomatic propriety". Russian Federation and United Kingdom are battling.

What concerned me even more was my daughter's fear that I might mention her name or her school. "It's not that hard to hide ". Broward Sheriff Scott Israel also admitted that Deputy Peterson did not enter the building and Israel said he should have.

Johnson said the attack was a way for Putin to send a message to anyone considering taking a stand against it that "You do that, you are going to die".

According to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, there is no record of Novichok nerve agents having been declared by any nation that signed the Chemical Weapons convention.

Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, former commander of the British Army's chemical and biological weapons regiment, called the claim that USA or British agents could have developed Novichok "complete hogwash".

Britain has given Putin until midnight on Tuesday to explain how a nerve agent developed by the former Soviet Union was used to strike down the father and daughter.

Russia Today, or RT, is a round-the-clock news network that is funded by Vladimir Putin's government to broadcast news with an edge for viewers who want to "question more".

Britain previously accused Russian Federation of being behind what it has called the "brazen" nerve-agent attack on Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter, Yulia, 33, in Salisbury, England, on March 4.
