Embassy of the Russian Federation: the British authorities stubbornly refused to diplomats in the meeting with Kripalani

LONDON, June 4. /TASS/. The British government stubbornly continues to deny Russian diplomats in the opportunity to talk personally with the victims of the Salisbury ex-GRU Colonel Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia. On Monday said the Russian Embassy in London.

“The British authorities stubbornly continue to deny us the opportunity to personally communicate with Kripalani. This only reinforces our suspicion that Skrypali either forcibly isolated, or their status does not correspond to what is said officially,” – said the Embassy, noting that British authorities “flatly refuse any cooperation with Russia both in bilateral and international format.”

“I draw the attention of the British government’s actions, concealing from the public any information about the investigation is proceeding in an atmosphere of secrecy,” added the Russian Embassy.

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, according to the British side, effects of nerve agents. Later London made a statement that this substance was 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.
