Russia's ambassador to the UN says the British have samples of nerve agents at Porton Down. Phillips Payson O'Brien, Professor of Strategic Studies, St Andrews University analyses Moscow's strategy with Brent Goff on The Day.
Moscow was sorry to hear a nerve agent had killed a woman, and was "deeply concerned" about such toxins' presence in the UK, said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov. But he described the case as a "British problem."
Tests have revealed how the victims of the UK nerve agent poisoning came into contact with the substance. Further tests are needed to see if it is the same batch that was used against Sergei Skripal and his daughter.
Two people who fell ill at the weekend were poisoned with the nerve agent. Counter-terror police said expert scientists believe it was the same substance that contaminated Yulia and Sergei Skripal.
Salisbury District Hospital is treating two people for suspected exposure to an unknown substance after they were found unconscious at the weekend. It is the same facility that treated Sergei and Yulia Skripal.
