10.04.2018 - Embassy Press Officer’s comment on the British investigation of the death of Nikolay Glushkov

The Embassy is unsatisfied with the level of interaction with the Metropolitan Police concerning the circumstances of the death of the Russian citizen Nikolay Glushkov and the course of the (hopefully) ongoing investigation. Despite the fact that Mr Glushkov was murdered on 12 March 2018, the Embassy has received virtually no information regarding the circumstances of his death and the course of the investigation, which is a matter of concern.

10.04.2018 - Embassy Press Officer’s reply to a question on destruction of evidence in relation to the Salisbury poisoning

Q: It has been reported that Mr Skripal’s house, “The Mill” pub and “Zizzi” restaurant in Salisbury, will be destroyed. What is your response to that? A: This confirms that the UK has embraced a policy of destroying important and valuable evidence.

09.04.2018 - Embassy Press Officer’s reply to a question on possible resettlement of Sergey and Yulia Skripal

Q: How do you assess the recent reports on the possibility of Sergey Skripal and Yulia Skripal to be resettled to the USA, Australia, Canada or New Zealand and offered new identities? A: This would be another gross violation of international law. Since the poisoning of Sergey and Yulia Skripal the United Kingdom has not complied with its international obligations under the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and the bilateral Consular Convention by not allowing consular access to the Russian citizens and not providing any verifiable information on their wishes in that respect.

09.04.2018 - Embassy Press Officer’s reply to a question on alleged interception of messages concerning the Salisbury poisoning by British analysts

Q: How would you comment on reports in the British media that British analysts intercepted messages that might be connected to the Salisbury poisoning? A: Media reports that on 3 and 4 March “RAF analysts” in Cyprus intercepted two messages, which included the phrases “the package has been delivered” and that two individuals had “made a successful egress” are unconvincing, as are the attempts to link those messages to the Skripals case.

08.04.2018 - Comment on the British investigation of the death of Mr Nikolay Glushkov

The Embassy has just received a Foreign Office Note Verbale regarding the death of the Russian citizen Mr Nikolay Glushkov in London on 12 March 2018.

08.04.2018 - The Embassy's comment on the Note Verbale of the Foreign Office regarding the denial of the British visa to Ms Viktoria Skripal

Russian Embassy in London Опубликовано Яковом Смирновым · 3 ч · On Saturday evening the Embassy received a Note Verbale from the Foreign Office, in which it informed that Ms Viktoria Skripal had applied for visa at the British Embassy in Moscow and had been informed of the outcome.

07.04.2018 - Embassy Press Officer’s reply to a question on current interactions with the FCO regarding the poisoning in Salisbury

Q: How do you assess the current state of cooperation between the Embassy and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office regarding the poisoning in Salisbury? A: Unfortunately, the current state of the Foreign Office interaction with the Embassy is utterly unsatisfactory. We believe that it is high time to arrange a meeting between Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson in order to discuss the whole range of bilateral issues, as well as the investigation of the Salisbury incident. Ambassador Yakovenko has already sent a respective personal note to the Foreign Secretary.

07.04.2018 - STATEMENT by Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia at the 5 April UN Security Council meeting on the letter by the United Kingdom dated 13 March 2018

Mr. President, On 14 March, 2018, the Security Council followed up on a letter from Prime Minister of United Kingdom Teresa May by an open meeting. The letter brought heinous and totally unsubstantiated accusations against Russia of using chemical weapons on the UK soil. UK representatives promised at that meeting to regularly brief the Council on the course of the investigation. However, no briefings came from their side. Well, in this case we will brief you in detail ourselves. It has been a month since Russian citizens Sergey Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious in the British town of Salisbury.
