Russia does not believe the statement made by Yulia Skripal and demanded a personal meeting
The Russian Embassy in the UK pointed out the strangeness of the statement of Yulia Skripal, released yesterday. This is stated in comments posted on the website of the Embassy.
“The video only heightens our concern about the conditions in which it is contained. Obviously, she read out a pre-written text. Moreover, according to a number of turnovers, it was the English, and the original was composed by a native speaker” — say diplomats.
“The United Kingdom has a responsibility to give us the opportunity to talk with Julia directly to make sure that it is not held against her will and not making statements under pressure. So far we have every reason to suspect the opposite”, — summarized in the Russian Embassy.
Earlier on 23 may, the Russian woman gave an interview to Reuters. According to her, in the long term, she plans to return home. Currently, she is in “a secret location in London.”
