The representative of the British PM, Theresa May, stated that the U.K. attempts to get Russia’s explanations concerning the poisoning of ex-GRU officer Sergei Skripal always faced complications and lie, and nothing changes, as Reuters reports.
“These men are officers of the Russian military intelligence service, the GRU ... The government has exposed the role of the GRU, its operatives and its methods, this position is supported by our international allies,” the spokesman said.
The words of the representative are the reaction to Putin’s statement that the suspects in Skripal’s case are just civilians and “have nothing to do with the crime”.
“We have repeatedly asked Russia to account for what happened in Salisbury in March and they have replied with obfuscation and lies. I can see nothing to suggest that has changed,” May’s representative said.
