Russian Federation 'was spying on ex-double agent for five years'

Russian Federation 'was spying on ex-double agent for five years'

Britain believes it is "likely" that when Russian Federation signed the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) in 1993, some Novichoks had passed acceptance testing.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said there was "no alternative explanation" when it came to culpability for the apparent attack on the father and daughter on March 4 in the British cathedral city of Salisbury, where they were found slumped comatose on a public bench.

The nerve agent attack on two people in England "demonstrates how reckless Russian Federation is prepared to be, how little the Kremlin cares for the global rules-based order", one of Britain's intelligence chiefs said Thursday, in an unusually public and scathing commentary on a foreign power. "The Kremlin must give answers".

The report does not name the source of the nerve agent, a subject which is beyond the remit of the inspectors.

"In the interest of transparency, and because unlike the Russians we have nothing to hide, we have asked the OPCW to publish the executive summary for all to see and to circulate the full report to all state parties of the OPCW, including Russia", Johnson said in a statement.

Skripal confirmed that she was safe and had specially trained officers available to her during the recovery.

However, this time there was no second-half collapse as City should have ran out even more convincing winners. One of the best three seasons of his playing and managing career, Guardiola said.

'Everyone knows about the UK's information warfare against Russian Federation over the Skripal case, ' said spokeswoman Maria Zakharova. She insisted it was up to Britain to prove "that these people aren't being held hostage and are not taking part in some frightful game".

And at Scotland Yard yesterday, Commissioner Cressida Dick said she hoped those responsible for the Salisbury attack could yet be put on trial.

"As before, we would like to make sure that the statement really belongs to Yulia".

"We didn't produce Novichok, we never have - that's the official position", he said. Her father remains "seriously ill", while she's "still suffering with the effects of the nerve agent", Skripal said in the statement, in which she also rejected offers of assistance from the Russian embassy in the United Kingdom.

The poisoning touched off one of the biggest diplomatic crises between Russian Federation and western nations since the Cold War, with both sides expelling scores of diplomats. The incident has exacerbated a major rift between Russian Federation and the west. A total of 28 countries, most of m European but also United States, Ukraine and Australia, joined expulsion measures of Russian personnel in ir respective countries.

On Saturday, Russia's foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, claimed the UN-linked Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) had sent the Skripals' biomedical samples to Swiss experts who found they contained traces of the nerve agent BZ, used by the west.
