Became known, the poisoned Skripal in London

25 March, 2018, 00:52 | Author: Priscilla Morrison

According to Mr Timoshkov, his friend, who he had known since school, did not see himself as a traitor as he had sworn an oath to the Soviet Union.

"It is not inconceivable that their condition could rapidly deteriorate", Judge Williams said describing their condition as critical but stable.

Russia has vehemently denied any responsibility for the incident, while Vladimir Chizhov, Russia's European Union ambassador, said that "from the legal point of view the Russian state had nothing against him [Skripal]".

He said he had reconnected with Skripal through his daughter Yulia after the conviction and in 2012 spoke to his old friend on the telephone for half an hour.

Sergei Skripal wrote to Vladimir Putin asking to be pardoned and to be able to visit his home country, a friend has revealed. "His mother, brother and other relatives were [in Russia]".

Russian Ambassador to the UK Alexander Yakovenko has assured Detective Sergeant Nick Bailey, who was injured in the attack on ex-Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal, that Moscow has nothing to do with the incident, as is evident from a letter the ambassador wrote to the police officer.

The nerve agent came from Europe, the foreign ministry said.

The site's chief executive told the BBC there is "no way" any nerve agent held at Porton Down could be linked to the poisoning of a Russian ex-spy and his daughter.

He said the laboratory had the "highest levels" of controls and security.

Bailey said in a statement that "normal life" for him "will probably never be the same".

It said anyone in either venue between 13:30 GMT on Sunday 4 March and closure on Monday should arrange to have their clothes collected and they will be compensated.

On Friday, EU leaders promised an "unprecedented" diplomatic response to the attack after backing UK Prime Minister Theresa May's assertion that Moscow was responsible.

Britain and its allies have accused Russian Federation of being behind the poisoning, but Moscow has denied any responsibility.

In the worst crisis between London and Moscow since the Cold War, Ms May expelled 23 Russian diplomats whom she said were spies.

Russian Federation responded by expelling United Kingdom diplomats and shutting down the British Council cultural organisation.

The bloc is recalling its ambassador to Russian Federation for "consultations" on the Salisbury attack.
