UK: Moscow ‘had nothing to do’ with Skripal case — Yakovenko in a letter to royal family

SOT, Alexander Yakovenko, Russian ambassador to the United Kingdom: «Since they don't have any evidence, that was confirmed during the speech or the statement of the National Security Advisor Mr. [Mark] Sedwill. He gave the evidence to the Defence Committee on the 1st of May and he said that the British authorities don't even have a suspect. Later on, we got an information from the police that... Еще they have at least two stories, two directions of the investigation and we are not aware which way they are moving. But it's clear that once you have two directions of the investigation, that means that when Russia is blamed for that incident, it's not just one: it's two directions. It means that there are no proves under the statements which were made by the British Government.» SOT, Alexander Yakovenko, Russian ambassador to the United Kingdom: «We'll continue the political pressure. As we understand, more British allies from the Western block are asking to present the evidence. Some few months ago when they made a joint statement in support of the British position, they believed [the Great] Britain on their word. Today, it's time to explain what are the evidence and I see the first signs of that kind of mood in Germany but I'm quite sure that other countries under the pressure of public opinion in their countries will have to do the same.» Russian ambassador to the United Kingdom Alexander Yakovenko said that he has sent a letter to Prince Charles explaining Moscow's position to the Salisbury incident, speaking in London on Friday. «I wrote that Russia had nothing to do with that,» Yakovenko said, repeating calls for London to grant Russia access to Julia and Sergei Skripal. The Russian ambassador also mentioned that sooner or later Britain has to come out with the proof of Moscow's alleged involvement in the attack, since «more British allies from the Western block are asking to present the evidence».
