A spokesman for the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, said that London's actions in the case of Sergey Skripal's poisoning are "unprecedented rudeness," Interfax reports.
According to Peskov, the latest London actions in the framework of the Skripal case are "unprecedented rudeness", which borders "with banditry in international affairs."
"You see that President Putin keeps absolute calm, absolute restraint, and, unlike the vis-a-vis on the island, remains absolutely correct," the government of the Russian Federation said.
According to him, for Russia the main thing is "to cope with this provocation."
We recall that the ex-officer of the Russian armed forces Sergei Skripal was poisoned in the British city of Salisbury on March 4. Later, Prime Minister Theresa Mey stated that responsibility lies on Russia, and the investigation confirmed the use of the nerve gas, produced in Russia.
The UK expelled 23 Russian diplomats from the country as part of a response to the Salisbury incident. Later, the European Union decided to withdraw its ambassador from Russia for consultations. The Russian Foreign Ministry considers May's accusations regarding "the case of Skripal" a provocation.
