Russia has been vying for a role in the inquiry into the poisoning of its ex-spy and his daughter found slumped on a park bench in Salisbury on March 4. Another Russian, Aeroflot airline’s deputy CEO Nikolai Glushkov, died in London days later and is believed by Scotland Yard to have been murdered.
"The UK continues to demonstrate a zero level of cooperation in these high-profile investigations. We think this damages police and judicial activities that aim to find truth and see justice done," an Embassy spokesperson said.
Skripal and his daughter were found unconscious on a bench near a shopping mall in Salisbury on March 4. The UK authorities were quick to blame Russia for orchestrating the Skripals' poisoning with what is believed by London to be the A234 nerve agent. Russia has refuted having any role in the poisoning, pointing to the lack of evidence provided by London.
