SOT, reporter: *TRANSCRIPT TO FOLLOW* SOT, Chris Williamson, UK MP for Derby North: *TRANSCRIPT TO FOLLOW* The UK Member of Parliament for Derby North, Chris Williamson, said that the British government conveniently used the Skripal poisoning case to divert attention from Brexit, adding that Foreign Minister Boris Johnson lied about the case, in an interview in Derby on Wednesday. «It was... Еще very convenient for the government to use this as a way of diverting attention from their own difficulties over Brexit and, at the end of the day, it's pretty clear that Boris Johnson did not tell the truth,» Williamson said. The comments followed recent revelations that Britain's chemical research facility at Porton Down was unable to identify the exact source of the nerve agent. Recently the UK Foreign Office deleted its tweet where it blamed Russia for the nerve agent attack on the former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia. Johnson earlier claimed that experts from the Porton Down research laboratory did not have any doubts that the substance was produced in Russia. Former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned in the beginning of March in Salisbury. The UK has blamed Moscow for the incident, while Russia has denied any involvement in the affair.
