Kremlin calls British allegations in spy poisoning case unacceptable
The Kremlin denied on Thursday that Russia was in any way involved in the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter, describing British accusations that the attack was approved by senior Russian officials as unacceptable.
Britain charged two Russians in absentia on Wednesday with the attempted murder of Sergei and Yulia Skripal in the English city of Salisbury. It said the two suspects were Russian military intelligence officers almost certainly acting on orders from high up in the Russian state. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters in a conference call that Russia again denies that any official representatives had anything to do with the events in Salisbury and that any such accusations is unacceptable.
