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. We have seen this already with Mr Skripal’s animals, the bench where Mr and Ms Skripal were found etc.


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.


09.04.2018 - Ambassador Yakovenko’s response to a question of the International Affairs magazine

Question: The Embassy’s Press officer informs that you have requested a meeting with Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson. What are you planning to discuss?

09.04.2018 - VIDEO: Russian Prosecutor General's Office holds briefing on Skripal case

Russian Prosecutor General’s Office shared documents relating to several high-profile crimes that happened on British soil. Russia says it was unsatisfied by how Britain handled them. Moscow officials pointed to what they see as flaws in relevant probes on the British side, and have accused UK authorities of failing to conduct proper investigations.


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. The Embassy appreciates the response, however the Note contains no information other than referring us to the Metropolitan Police in case we have any questions.


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. It seems that this Note is a formality and does not answer the questions posed by our Embassy.


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.
