“Since March 4, the British side is doing everything possible to hinder our access to the criminal case. The UK does not provide any information about the investigation and consistently blocking the access of Russian representatives to such evidence as samples of nerve substance, used in Salisbury. Despite the fact that in Russia a criminal case was opened against Yulia poisoning Skripal, our law enforcement agencies are deprived of the opportunity to obtain the necessary evidence, as their British colleagues are refusing to cooperate with them”, — he added.
The diplomat recalled that on 12 March, Prime Minister Theresa may and foreign Minister Boris Johnson has put forward very serious accusations against Russia and since then it’s been almost a month, but those allegations the British side with facts and not confirmed.
“We have the impression that the British government deliberately trying to destroy all possible evidence, to classify all remaining material and thereby eliminate the possibility of an independent and transparent investigation. Such a course could only undermine the credibility of the country and cause even greater blow to its image. We demand a clear public explanation of this position,” — said the representative of the Embassy.
