LONDON, may 10. /TASS/. Russia will not get consular access to former GRU Colonel Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia, who suffered in Salisbury as a result of poisoning. On Thursday, said the Russian Ambassador in London Alexander Yakovenko on the results of the meeting with the CEO of the British foreign office security by Philip Burton.

“I after this conversation, the mood is quite pessimistic,” – said the Russian Ambassador. “From her I learned that the British side does not intend to give access to Scriply, and therefore, we cannot ascertain in what state are they in and are there against their will. We don’t even know where they are,” he said.
