    SourcesBritish PM's statement on ex-spy poisoning case unacceptable: Russia

    British Prime Minister Theresa May's statement over the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia was "absolutely unacceptable," the Russian Foreign Ministry has said. "It contains a number of peremptory accusations against Russia and two of our citizens. We strongly reject these insinuations," the ministry said on Wednesday in a statement, Xinhua news agency reported. Traces of the deadly nerve agent Novichok used in the attack have been found in a London hotel, May told MPs on Wednesday in the House of Commons. She said in an official statement that the British police and intelligence agencies have identified two Russian nationals they believe were responsible for the attack in March in the British city of Salisbury which left Sergei and Yulia fighting for their lives. Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said on Rossiya-1 TV channel that Britain should provide fingerprints of the suspects to Interpol as these people allegedly from Russia must have received British visas. The poisoning case triggered a diplomatic crisis with Russia and Western countries mutually expelling a large number of diplomats.

  • US, allies ready for new strikes on Syria: Russia
    SourcesUS, allies ready for new strikes on Syria: Russia

    The US and its allies are planning to carry out new missile strikes on Syria on the pretext of a provocation that the Syrian government is behind a "chemical attack," the Russian Defence Ministry has said. However, the planned "chemical attack" by Syrian government forces in Syria's Idlib province is actually staged by the Hayat Tahrir Al-Sham terrorist group, previously known as "Jabhat al-Nusra" with the help of British personnel, the ministry's spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov said, citing information confirmed by several independent sources, Xinhua reported. Eight tanks of chlorine and a special group of militants, who were trained in handling poisonous substances under the supervision of a British private military company, have been brought to Idlib for the chemical attack, Konashenkov said. "The execution of this provocation with the active participation of the British special services is set to serve as another pretext for the US, UK and France to inflict missile and air strikes on Syria's state and economic facilities," Konashenkov said on Saturday. To this end, a Sullivans destroyer of the US Navy with 56 cruise missiles on board arrived in the Persian Gulf a few days ago, and a B-1B strategic bomber of the US Air Force armed with 24 air-to-surface cruise missiles was re-deployed to the Al Udeid air base in Qatar, according to the spokesman. The spokesman said that the actions of Western countries are "aimed at another drastic aggravation of the situation in the Middle East region and the disruption of the peace process on the territory of Syria". On April 4, 2017, a reported toxic gas attack hit the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib, killing over 80 people and wounding scores of others. Two days later, the US launched 59 cruise missiles against the Shayrat military base in central Syria, where Washington believes airplanes carrying chemical weapons took off. The US and many Western countries blamed the Assad government for the chemical attacks but Syria and Russia insisted that it's a plot by the West in a bid to overturn the Assad administration.
