Kremlin: London will have to offer apologies to Moscow over Skripal case
Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said that British Prime Minister Theresa May and the Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson will have to offer its apologies to Moscow but "the idiocy has gone too far."
"London somehow will have to offer its apologies to the Russian side, but obviously it is going to be a long story and the idiocy of it has gone too far," Peskov said, commenting the situation over the Skripal case.
The spokesman stressed he was sure the United Kingdom’s accusations would never be proved. "The British Foreign Secretary, who accused President Putin, and the British Prime Minister will have to look in the eyes of their EU colleagues after telling them what they told," Peskov added.
He said that the United Kingdom’s accusations against Russia on the Skripal case are receiving eloquent counter evidence.
"The situation was iniquitous for us from the very beginning. And now there emerge evidence that these mad accusations the British side voiced just a few hours after the incident are based on nothing. These are telling official evidence from experts," he told journalists commenting on Sky News recent reports on the Salisbury incident.
