EU ministers will review the Salisbury incident on April 16 in Brussels, the Russian state-run news agency TASS has reported.
The development of the so-called Skripal poisoning story is ongoing without any reasonable evidence, but its “abduction”.
On March 4, former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were allegedly poisoned in the UK by the nerve agent “Novichok”. London rushed to accuse Russia in the incident and launched a large-scale diplomatic campaign to pressure Moscow. Russia rejected all the accusations.
On April 10, BBC news stated that Yulia Skripal had left the hospital and had been taken to a secure location.
Sergei Skripal still stays in the hospital, making “good progress” as the Medical Director at Salisbury District Hospital confirmed earlier.
The Russian Embassy in London demanded that the UK provide evidence that everything that concerned Yulia Skripal had been done on her own free will.
“We congratulate Yulia on her recovery. Yet we need urgent proof that what is being done to her is done on her own free will,” wrote the Embassy.
Victoria Skripal, Yulia’s cousin is skeptical that Skripal’s daughter has a right to decide something on her own.
“I think Britain will insist that she claims asylum,” she told British Sky News. “I’ve tried lots of numbers for her but have had no response”.
Furthermore, the Russian Embassy stated that the UK decision to resettle Skripals would be “another gross violation of international law”:
“Secret resettlement of Mr and Ms Skripal, barred from any contact with their family will be seen as an abduction or at least as their forced isolation.” twitted the Embassy.
On April 8, reports appeared that MI6 and the CIA had agreed that Skripals would be offered new identities in the USA to protect them from further murder attempts and give them a possibility to help in the investigation of poisoning.
The diplomatic crisis between Russia and the so-called West has been decreasing. So, the UK is trying to abduct the details of the failed provocation and continuing to make the Skripal case “fall apart”.
