British Permanent Representative to the United Nations Karen Pierce said that Russia 'played dice with the lives of the people of Salisbury' with its 'reckless involvement' while speaking about the Skripal nerve agent attack at the United Nations Security Council on Thursday. Pierce claimed the United Kingdom now has «clear evidence of Russian state involvement in what happened in Salisbury, and... Еще the use of CW [Chemical Weapons].» She also alleged that «UK government has concluded that the two individuals named by the police investigation are in fact officers from the Russian military intelligence service, also known as the GRU,» and added that a European arrest warrant would be issued for their arrest. The UN Security Council is meeting to discuss the naming of two suspects accused of being involved in alleged poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury on March 4. British authorities said that there is sufficient evidence to charge two Russian nationals, Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, with conspiracy to murder and attempted murder over the nerve agent attack. The Kremlin denies any involvement in the affair.
