Maria Zakharova dubs Theresa May’s comments as 'circus show'
Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has dubbed as a ‘circus show’ comments of UK Prime Minister Theresa May on the poisoning of a former colonel in Russia’s GRU military intelligence, Sergey Skripal, and his daughter.
"This is a circus show in Britain’s parliament. The conclusion is obvious - a next political media campaign based on provocation," the spokesperson stressed.
Zakharova stressed that Moscow urges London to make public the results of the investigation into the deaths of Alexander Litvinenko and Boris Berezovsky.
"Before making up new stories, let somebody in the Kingdom tell us what the previous fairy-tales ended in - those about Litvinenko, Berezovsky, Perepilichny and many others who died under mysterious circumstances on British soil," TASS cited the diplomat as saying.
Earlier, Theresa May said it is "highly likely" that Russia is responsible for the poisoning of Sergey Skripal and his daughter.
