The Russian foreign Ministry was invited on March 21, the ambassadors of all foreign countries in Moscow for meeting with leaders and experts of the Department for nonproliferation and arms control to discuss the case of ex-GRU Colonel Sergei Skripal. This was reported by TASS, the official representative of the Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.

“On March 21, the Russian foreign Ministry invited all accredited in Russia, ambassadors of foreign countries to meet with leaders and experts of the Department for nonproliferation and arms control, she said. The main theme of the meeting was the situation surrounding the statements of UK on the application in its territory of toxic substances”.

“It is planned to bring the Russian point of view to official representatives of foreign States, to answer questions, and to voice the concerns of the Russian side”, – she added.

The MFA representative noted that because of the position of London no one still does not know what substance was poisoned Skripal.

“I would also like to note that in the press there is a large number of opinions and even “memories” of experts on a given topic, she said. Official information of the Russian side were voiced in the UN security Council, OSCE, OPCW and so on. Unfortunately, until now, despite numerous appeals to London, nobody knows what kind of material was used in Salisbury”.
