Former GRU officer Sergey Skripal, who was convicted earlier in Russia for treason, and his daughter Julia was poisoned in British Salisbury on 4 March. It provoked an international scandal. London almost immediately made a categorical assertion that the substance that had poisoned Skripal and his daughter, supposedly developed in Russia, and on this basis accused Moscow of involvement in the incident, sent Russian diplomats and persuaded to do the same and other countries.
Earlier, Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that “it Skripal” is crumbling before our eyes due to the lack of any evidence against Russia. The Russian foreign Ministry sent to their British colleagues about 60 diplomatic notes, which contain requirements to provide the country with access to the investigation and affected citizens. In addition, was sent a request on legal assistance and cooperation (including joint investigation). However, the British authorities still did not respond.
