Russia’s Foreign minister Sergei Lavrov condemned claims Russia was behind the assassination attempt on Sergei Skripal in Salisbury on March 4 as “absolutely boorish” and “unacceptable”.

Foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova condemned what she said were “absolutely insane accusations made by the UK prime minister against Russia”, adding that the UK had failed to provide any factual information about the case. She said diplomatic notes sent to the Foreign Office had received replies that “made no sense”.
