Russia urges full access to evidence in spy case

Police officers March 6 outside the house of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal in Salisbury England. British police say they believe a Russian ex-spy and his daughter first came into contact with a military-grade nerve agent at their front door

The report puts beyond doubt that it was highly likely Russian Federation carried out the attack, people close to the investigation said, adding that the nerve agent could only be concocted in a very sophisticated laboratory by highly capable chemists who were familiar with the agent.

It noted that there was an "almost complete absence of impurities" in the toxic chemical. The head of the organization noted that the investigation of the OPCW specialists is carried out regardless of the position of any country.

The experts took samples from several locations as well as biomedical samples from the Skripals and police officer Nick Bailey, who was also exposed to the nerve agent. British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson called the OPCW report "convincing".

"Only Russia has the means, motive and record".

"The results of analysis by OPCW-designated laboratories. confirm the findings of the United Kingdom relating to the identity of the toxic chemical", the published summary said.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson described the OPCW report as "conclusive", arguing, "There can be no doubt what was used and there remains no alternative explanation about who was responsible - only Russian Federation has the means, motive and record". Claiming that the substance used in the attack had been a Novichok-class nerve agent developed in the Soviet Union, London rushed to accuse Russian Federation of being involved in the incident.

The government of Prime Minister Theresa May expelled 23 Russian diplomats in retaliation and called on ir worldwide allies to follow in ir footsteps.

Russia urges full access to evidence in spy case

Russian Federation has consistently denied any involvement in the poisoning. In retaliation to the UK's steps, Russian Federation expelled 23 British diplomats, closed the British consulate general in the city of St. Petersburg, while the British Council had to shut down its operations in Russian Federation. "At the same time, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office continues to assure us that Sergei and Yulia Skripal are receiving high-quality medical care, again without details", the embassy said. She also said she did not yet want to speak to the media.

Salisbury District Hospital is seen after Yulia Skripal was discharged, in Salisbury, Britain, April 10, 2018. "At the moment, I don't wish to avail myself of these solutions, however should I modify my own mind I know just how to contact them".

Russian Federation has said it does not have such nerve agents and President Vladimir Putin said it was nonsense to think that Moscow would have poisoned the Skripals.

"The document only strengthens suspicions that we are dealing with a forcible isolation of the Russian citizen".

The Russian embassy later said that the statement "raises new questions rather than gives answers" as it was unable to verify it.

British authorities "must urgently provide tangible evidence that Yulia is all right and not deprived of her freedom", the embassy said in a statement. "So far, we doubt it much", an embassy statement said. The OPCW was not tasked to identify where the nerve agent came from.
