Russian Embassy Twitter Account Snarks About Alleged Poisoning of MI6 Double Agent

Russian Embassy Twitter Account Snarks About Alleged Poisoning of MI6 Double Agent

On Thursday afternoon there was a "flurry of activity" in Salisbury as investigators wearing protective suits went into Mr Skripal's house, as they try to ascertain where the pair were exposed to the nerve agent.

About 180 troops have been brought in to help remove vehicles and potentially-contaminated objects around the crime scene due to their specialist knowledge, said police. Mrs May said: "Depending on what comes out in relation to the investigation into the attack on the two individuals that took place in Salisbury.it might be appropriate to look at whether ministers and other dignitaries should attend the World Cup in Russian Federation". "Military assistance will continue as necessary during this investigation".

Former Commissioner Ian Blair has backed calls from a senior Labour Party lawmaker to re-examine the deaths in light of the attack on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the city of Salisbury.

Russian Federation 2018 have not commented on the incident involving Skripal and his daughter, and remain in talks with FIFA over an "ongoing risk assessment" of the tournament.

Detective Sergeant Nick Bailey rushed to the aid of Sergai Skripal.

Wiltshire Police temporary Chief Constable Kier Pritchard said the officer was in a "serious, but stable, condition" and had since regained consciousness. She declined to give details of the police investigation.

Police say there is no danger to the public, although a nearby restaurant and pub, which the victims visited before they were found, have been cordoned off.

Rudd, who is in charge of public security issues, says the police officer also injured in the incident Sunday is also in serious condition but is conscious and talking.

The 66-year-old was accused of working for MI6 over several years, in particular disclosing the names of several dozen Russian agents working in Europe.




Skripal was convicted by Russian Federation in 2006 of spying for Britain, and was given refuge in the United Kingdom in 2010 as part of a high-profile "spy swap".

After a communication breakdown this week with the U.S. State Department, the Russian Embassy in Washington proposed using Twitter for diplomatic correspondence. "This was attempted murder in the most cruel and public way".

Britain will respond appropriately if evidence shows Moscow sponsored a nerve agent attack on a Russian ex-spy and his daughter in southern England, Prime Minister Theresa May says in her strongest warning to date.

According to the hospital authorities, doctors managed to identify the nerve agent that was used on the father-daughter duo, but didn't reveal its name.

She said the incident was "a stark reminder, if ever one was needed, of the risky situations our emergency services face and the dedication and courage they display every day in order to keep us safe".

Commentators will inevitably look to compare this incident with the fatal poisoning of Russian dissident Alexander Litvinenko in London in 2006, who had Polonium 210, a radioactive substance - rather than a nerve agent - administered in a cup of tea.

The ex-agent was found unconscious on a bench in the English city of Salisbury on Monday alongside his daughter Yulia. Because of this, the attack on Sergei is being seen as an attack that was likely backed by a foreign government. Speaking to reporters during a visit to the African Union headquarters in Addis Ababa on Friday, Lavrov said Russian officials had not received a single fact or piece of concrete evidence about what had happened to Skripal and his daughter.

"What we see is only news reports. saying that if it is Russian Federation, then a response is going to be given that Russian Federation is going to remember forever", Mr Lavrov said during a visit to Addis Ababa.
