RUSSIA (OBSERVATORY) – The official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Maria Zakharova has declared about “numerous deceits” from the side of the government of Great Britain in connection with the case of the Skripal.
“The first lie of the government of Therese May that British experts have established a country for the manufacture of a chemical substance that was allegedly poisoned by the Skripal was officially denied by British experts in the person of the head of the Porton-Dawn laboratory,” Zakharova wrote on her Facebook page.
In her opinion, “the second lies of the government of Therese May regarding the alleged Russian motive for poisoning the Fiddles in connection with the historically bad behavior of our country was refuted by the Russian side, including by quoting facts of regular violations by Britain of the norms of international law, ethics and morals in order to achieve their own “national interests,” and also listing a few obvious motives for this provocation, beneficial to London.”
“The third lie of the government of Therese May that” Novice “was allegedly produced only in Russia, today denied the President of the Czech Republic, who confirmed the development of this sending substance by his country,” Zakharova wrote.
The official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation noted that, according to Czech President Milos Zeman, “the Czech defense research institute produced and tested a poisonous substance that the country’s military intelligence classified as “Novice.”
On March 4, former Colonel GRU Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia were hospitalized in the British city of Salisbury in critical condition after interacting with an unknown substance.
Currently Julia Skripal has already been discharged from the hospital , her father is on the mend and is no longer in critical condition.
On March 12, British Prime Minister Teresa Mei said in parliament that they were poisoned by the nerve agent “Novice” (A-234), developed in Russia.
Moscow strongly rejected these accusations, reminding that all chemical weapons of the Russian Federation were destroyed in 2017 under the control of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
