The Russian Ambassador to the UK has received ‘illiterate’ replies from the British Foreign Ministry on Russian requests on the Skripal case. This was stated by the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Maria Zakharova.
At the same time, the diplomat noted that the British side is in a hurry to investigate the case of Skripal, which lacks internal coordination.
Relations between the countries have escalated due to the poisoning Sergei Skripal, convicted in Russia for espionage in favor of Britain, and his daughter Julia.
According to London, the poison was developed in Russia, and on this basis they accused Moscow of involvement in the incident. The Russian side categorically rejected the entire accusation.
As a result, the UK expelled 23 Russian diplomats from the country. In response, Russia took similar steps.
