Russia:'Well-planned action' — Zakharova on UK claims of Russian involvement in Skripal attack

Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova called the latest UK accusations that Russia was involved in the poisoning of a former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter as a 'well-planed action,' speaking from Moscow on Thursday. «Everything that happens is used by London for its political purposes. London doesn't need the truth,» she emphasized. «The photos and names [of... Еще suspects] were presented yesterday. The police didn't provide any documentary evidence: copies of passports, copies of visa and fingerprints,» Zakharova said. She added that photos of suspects were published on the web without any explanations. Russia requested the British side to give clarifications and, in return, received no answer. «Why such a little respect to the international community? So when they need to call their allies and partners for sanctions, they have enough words and emotions. And when it's a need to share information, nobody does it,» Zakharova stressed. The Metropolitan police said on Wednesday there is sufficient evidence to charge two Russian nationals, named as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, with offences including conspiracy to murder over the Salisbury nerve agent attack. Former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned by a nerve agent in Salisbury on March 4. The UK has blamed Moscow for the incident, while the Kremlin has denied any involvement in the affair.
