Reasonable to conclude Russia behind spy attack — Sturgeon

The four nations called upon Moscow to provide full and complete disclosure of its Novichok nerve agent program to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

John Thompson, the deputy leader of the council, said it has chosen to make the park-and-ride site free but not parking because it would cause "chaos".

He says the West has repeatedly tried to undermine Russia.

"We have said on different levels and occasions that Russia has nothing to do with this story", he said.

Sturgeon's comments came shortly before a rare joint statement by the Prime Minister alongside the leaders of the United States, Germany and France stating Russian responsibility was the "only plausible explanation".

Peskov emphasized that "we have repeatedly said that Russia has no relation to that".

Since arriving in Britain, he had lived modestly in Salisbury, keeping out of the spotlight until earlier this month.

Speaking on a visit to Salisbury to meet members of the emergency services dealing with the aftermath of the use of the so-called Novichok nerve agent, Mrs May said the statement showed Britain's allies "are standing alongside us".

Australia has also backed Britain's decision to expel 23 Russian diplomats and is considering its own retaliation. Moscow has fiercely denied its involvement and warned it would respond.

Garry Collins, 63, who had been Mr Skripal's driver since 2011, told The Times that the Russian had told him about his daughter's travel plans.

Skripal, a former colonel in the GRU who betrayed dozens of Russian agents to British intelligence, and his daughter have been critically ill since March 4, when they were found unconscious on a bench in Salisbury, an elegant cathedral city.

March 7: Police confirm the Skripals were exposed to a nerve agent, and that one police officer is in intensive care in a serious condition.

It has vowed a swift response to the expulsion.

Yakovenko said he was surprised by how quickly British PM Theresa May blamed Russia for Skripal's poisoning, despite the absence of any evidence.

Meanwhile, Russia is retaliating against the U.K.by expelling British diplomats. It's nonsense, made up by the Brits.

Mrs Litvinenko says the Salisbury attack marks a watershed moment and shows Russians may not be safe in Britain. London has actively engaged a NATO-led anti-Russian campaign for this purpose, he said.

Russia insists it was not involved, despite Britain's assertion that the nerve agent was one first produced in the former Soviet Union.

The PM's arrival here comes 11 days after the attempted murder of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia. "In any case when we are meeting at different venues, usually at receptions, we usually have quite constructive and friendly conversations".

When asked if England should pull out of the World Cup she said: 'I don't think it will be right.

RT, previously Russia Today, was also hard at work stirring the pot. "The Kremlin wants to dismantle the international rules-based system". Frankly Russia should go away and should shut up.
