Russia: Moscow ‘unaware’ of appeals for help over ‘worrying’ Amesbury incident — Peskov *AUDIO*

SOT, Dmitri Peskov, Press Secretary for Russian President Vladimir Putin (Russian): «I am unaware of any appeals [from British authorities]. After Salisbury incident we offered our help with a joint investigation, to shed light on this matter, but our appeals received no answer. We are very sorry that two people are in critical condition, according to the media. We wish them a speedy recovery... Еще.» The Press Secretary for Russian President Vladimir Putin, Dmitri Peskov, said that the Kremlin was ‘unaware’ of British appeals for help in investigating the Amesbury incident during a phone interview with a Russian journalist in Moscow on Thursday. He also added that Russia offered help investigating the previous Salisbury incident and never received any reply: “After the Salisbury incident we offered our help with a joint investigation, to shed light on this matter, but our appeals received no answer.” A man and woman — believed to be Charlie Rowley and Dawn Sturgess — were taken to Salisbury hospital after what police say was exposure to the nerve agent Novichok. The couple were found unconscious and in a critical condition at an address on Muggleton Road, Amesbury this Wednesday. A ‘major incident’ has since been declared by police, and UK counter-terrorism officers have joined the inquiry. The same agent was supposedly used on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury this March. Both locations are a short distance from the UK's chemical weapons laboratory Porton Down.
