Russia Slams UK PM’s ’Circus in Parliament’ on Skripal Poisoning Case

Russia Slams UK PM’s ’Circus in Parliament’ on Skripal Poisoning Case

Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova

Russia has dubbed as a ‘circus show’ comments of UK Prime Minister on the poisoning of Sergey Skripal, a former Russian intelligence official, and his daughter.

Alwaght- Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has rebuked ‘circus show’ comments of UK Prime Minister Theresa May on the poisoning of Sergey Skripal, a former Russian intelligence official, and his daughter.

"This is a circus show in Britain’s parliament," she stressed. "The conclusion is obvious - a next political media campaign based on provocation," Zakharova added.

Earlier, Theresa May said it is "highly likely" that Russia is responsible for the poisoning of Sergey Skripal, a former colonel in Russia’s GRU military intelligence and his daughter.

Moscow urges London to make public the results of the investigation into the deaths of Alexander Litvinenko and Boris Berezovsky, Zakharova said.

"Before making up new stories, let somebody in the Kingdom tell us what the previous fairy-tales ended in - those about Litvinenko, Berezovsky, Perepilichny and many others who died under mysterious circumstances on British soil," the diplomat said.

Former GRU Colonel Sergey Skripal, 66, and his 33-year-old daughter Julia on March 4 suffered from the effects of an unidentified nerve agent. They were found in an unconscious condition on a bench near The Maltings shopping center in Salisbury, England. Both are now in hospital in critical condition.

In 2004, Skripal was arrested by the federal security service FSB, charged, tried and convicted of high treason and stripped of all ranks and awards. In 2010 he was handed over to the United States under an arrangement to exchange persons arrested on spying charges. Later in the same year Skripal settled in Britain.

May says the government will be considering whether dignitaries and ministers from the UK will be attending this year's FIFA World Cup in Russia but she did not say anything about the England team boycotting the event, which suggests that that is not on the agenda.
