    Earlier, the UK Metropolitan Police said that a woman, identified as Dawn Sturgess, had died in a local hospital, one week after being exposed to a toxic substance in Amesbury.

    The police have launched a murder investigation.

    UK Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson accused Russia of carrying out the poisoning attack.

    Moscow said that it regretted Sturgess' death and remained very concerned about the repeated poisoning incidents on British soil.

    The Russian Embassy in the United Kingdom has said that Moscow would consider the Salisbury and Amesbury incidents as anti-Russia provocations by London if the UK side did not provide Russia with access to the investigation materials and the Skripals.
