160 countries expect evidence of Russia’s guilt from Britain: embassy

All the countries “not involved in the Western bloc” are expecting British Prime Minister Theresa May to present proofs of Moscow’s complicity in poisoning of Sergei Skripal, a former military intelligence officer. Spokesperson of the Russian Embassy in London made such statement to journalists, according to RIA Novosti.

He said these are about 160 countries. “Even if Mrs. May said that she was absolutely sure that Russia was responsible for the incident in Salisbury, she would have to present all evidence to Russia, the international community and the British public. This is the opinion of almost 160 countries which are not members of the Western bloc,” he said. “It is obvious that no one in the wider world would take British words for granted.”

Earlier, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova called UK’s presentation telling about Skripal’s poisoning “as Theresa May’s failure.”

EADaily recalls that Moscow still waits for proofs from London. In the meantime, U.S. and many European countries started expelling Russian diplomats.
