Almost all evidence is being destroyed during the UK investigation into the Salisbury poisoning case, Russian Ambassador in London Alexander Yakovenko said on Saturday.
"Almost all evidence is being destroyed. In case if there is a need to check something, there will be no such opportunity," Yakovenko said in an interview with the Rossiya 24 TV channel.
The diplomat added that Russian investigators were ready to go to the United Kingdom to carry out a joint investigation into the case.
"Our investigators are ready because we want to understand what is going on. I am not sure that the UK side will agree on our proposals at some stage but they [proposals] are on the table," he stressed.
Great Britain, the US and many European countries responded to the incident by expelling Russian diplomats, despite Moscow having adamantly refuted the allegations as groundless, instead offering to conduct a joint investigation into the affair.
