Russia: ‘UK expects account from the Russian State by the end of today’ – Amb. Bristow

UK ambassador to the Russian Federation Laurie Bristow said that the UK “expect[s] by the end of today an account from the Russian State,” after having been summoned to the Russian Ministry of International Affairs in Moscow on Tuesday.

Bristow met with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Vladimir Titov where they discussed “the events in Salisbury and [British] Prime Minister [Theresa] May statement in the House of Commons yesterday.”

The ambassador added: “The Prime Minister will take decisions and make an announcement in the course of tomorrow as to what our response will be.”

Bristow had been summoned amid rising tensions between London and Moscow over allegations of Russian involvement in using a nerve agent in an assassination attempt on ex-Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury.

Earlier today, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov advised the United Kingdom government to follow international law before giving ‘ultimatums’ to Russia.
