The Russian Ambassador to the United Kingdom Alexander Yakovenko claimed that Downing Street is using underhand tactics to cover up the Salisbury case during a press briefing in London on Friday. «We get the impression that the British government is deliberately pursuing the policy of destroying all possible evidence, classifying all remaining materials and making a transparent investigation... Еще impossible,» said Yakovenko. Yakovenko added that the Kremlin has every reason to believe Yulia Skripal has been abducted or is being forcibly isolated. According to the ambassador, the British government's handling of the Salisbury case and the death of Russian national Nikolai Glushkov is 'unacceptable' and has failed to meet international obligations. Former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, who has since been discharged from hospital, 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.
