Czech Republic (Russian): «I hope it [beer] was English.» Czech Republic: Russian Ambassador piles pressure on British gov. ahead of OPCW Russia will propose a solution to the growing diplomatic crisis with the Britain and the West at an emergency meeting of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in The Hague, said Russia's Ambassador to the Czech... Еще Republic Alexander Zmeyevsky during a press conference in Prague on Wednesday. The extraordinary meeting of the OPCW is being held at Russia's request to discuss the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury on March 4. Despite repeated requests from Russian Embassy to the UK, «we received only only formal replies, which practically mean a refusal to access the information and cooperation on this case», said Zmeyevsky. The Ambassador added, «we would like to remind that Britain is responsible for the life and health of the foreign citizens while they are in the country, as well as for the crimes conducted against them.” These comments followed revelations yesterday that Britain’s chemical research facility at Porton Down was unable to identify the exact source of the nerve agent.
