Moscow is not linked to the incident with former Russian spy Sergey Skripal who was poisoned with a nerve agent in the United Kingdom, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday, APA reported citing TASS.
"Moscow’s stance is well-known, London was told about Moscow’s position through diplomatic channels: Moscow has no connection to the incident that took place in the United Kingdom," Peskov said. "Moscow won’t accept absolutely unfounded accusations against it, which are not substantiated by any evidence, and won’t accept the language of ultimatum," Peskov stressed.
Meanwhile, Russia is "open for cooperation in investigating" the incident, but unfortunately, the British are not showing this readiness, the Kremlin spokesman stressed.
"Stay sober, do not succumb to emotions and lies," Peskov told reporters.
