Volodin believes that the EU, a shame for the expulsion of Russian diplomats over the case Skripal

MOSCOW, June 3. /TASS/. Speaker of the state Duma Vyacheslav Volodin suggests that European countries are ashamed of the expulsion of Russian diplomats in solidarity with the UK due to business Skrobala, as evidence of Russia’s involvement in the incident was not provided.

“Many European countries succumbed to this provocation, made a decision that they probably now ashamed. No evidence, no logic. It is obvious that, if we are talking about the poisoning with use of military substances, the consequences must have been fatal. But when we see those who were poisoned, in good health (thank God for that), the questions arise, what has actually happened,” said Volodin at a meeting with the Vice-President of the Eastern Republic of Uruguay, the President of the chamber of senators of the Parliament Lucia Topolansky.

The speaker also pointed to inconsistencies in the charges against Russia the charges in the shipment Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia. “If there is an antidote to this substance, then, is this substance, and the UK. Then why these allegations against Russia?” – said Volodin. He also reminded that Russia insisted on the participation in the investigation, however, the British side has denied this.

“In balance there is one… the tension that has arisen in the world community”, – said the head of the lower house. However, he expressed thanks to Uruguay, whose leadership, despite pressure from the United States not gone on the expulsion of Russian diplomats.

Topolansky said that Uruguay is in favour of the right to sovereignty of all countries. “We need to keep the right to make decisions and, of course, the news [about the poisoning Skrobala] was strange and looked like a cut”, she concluded.

According to British side, 4 Mar 66-year-old ex-GRU Colonel Sergei Skripal, sentenced in Russia for espionage in favour of great Britain, and his 33-year-old daughter Julia has been in Salisbury effects of nerve agents. Later London issued a statement that it is a substance called “Beginner” supposedly developed in Russia, and on this basis accused Moscow of involvement in the incident. The Russian side has categorically denied all the speculation on this score.
