The official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova questioned the publication of the research group Bellingcat, on investigation about Alexander Petrov, and Ruslan Bashirova, London suspects in the poisoning of a British spy, ex-GRU officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia.
