“We think it overwhelmingly likely that it was his decision – to direct the use of a nerve agent on the streets of the UK, on the streets of Europe for the first time since the Second World War,” he stressed.

As it was reported, Britain accused Russia of using a nerve agent in Salisbury, of violation of UN Charter and Chemical Weapon Convention.

The nerve agent was used in an attempt to poison Sergey Skripal, the former GRU officer. Skripal along with his daughter are in a coma, the police officer, who came to the accident scene first, is in the hospital I a critical condition.
