Russian Federation has denied everything over the Skripal case, including suggesting the United Kingdom may have carried out the attack.

"There is no plausible alternative explanation", he added. He reiterated Russia's dismay over the British government's refusal to allow Russian diplomats access to Skripal and his daughter Yulia, who was also poisoned, saying that from Moscow's point of view, the two Russian nationals appear to have been abducted by the British authorities.

Yulia Skripal earlier this week was discharged after more than a month of hospital treatment following the attack.

Yulia Kripal was released from hospital this week.

He identifies a branch of the Russian research institute at Shikhany near Volgograd in southern Russia as being largely responsible for that work.

So far, Stanton has three and Judge two. " He's jumping at everything, missing balls by a few feet and not identifying pitches". The 28-year-old has been forced into regular action at the unfamiliar position due to the outfield being decimated by injuries.

Russian Federation strongly denies the UK's claims about Novichok, saying it destroyed its entire Soviet-era chemical weapons arsenal past year under global oversight.

Richard Guthrie, an independent chemical-weapons expert, says an important detail in the investigation is that the toxic substance is of "high purity". "The Russian state has previously produced Novichoks and would still be capable of doing so". In a letter to Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, Sir Mark also said that in the 2000s the Russians had begun a programme to train personnel from "special units" in the use of chemical warfare agents.

The Foreign Ministry says that it is Russia's response to Georgia's previous decision over the Skripal case.

Besides, the poisoning of Alexander Litvinenko in 2006 was mentioned in the letter as well.

"Russia has a proven record of conducting state-sponsored assassination".

He said that Russian Federation had continued to produce and stockpile small quantities of Novichoks within the last decade.

He also said Russia had a clear motive for attacking Skripal, a former Russian military intelligence officer who had been imprisoned in Russia for spying for Britain only to be set free in a spy swap.

"If somebody was spying, why were the British services not complaining about it, because they always complain if something goes wrong in their country or somewhere else", he said during a news conference in London.

In a letter to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), the National Security Adviser Sir Mark Sedwill has revealed that Skripals were the subject of "interest" from the Kremlin's security services since 2013 and there was evidence that Russian Federation trained "special units" to use nerve agents.
