Russia hands protest note to British ambassado

The Russian Foreign Ministry says it has handed the British ambassador a note of protest regarding the accusations leveled against Moscow over last week’s poisoning of an ex-Russian spy.
Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia remain hospitalized in critical condition after being exposed to a military-grade nerve agent.
British Prime Minister Theresa May has vowed retaliatory measures if Russia offers no explanation for how the nerve agent developed in the Soviet Union came to poison the former spy and his daughter in a British city.
The Russian Foreign Ministry says it has summoned British Ambassador Laurie Bristow and handed him a protest note over the “baseless accusations” leveled against Russia. The ministry dismissed the reaction of British authorities to the attack as “provocative” and said it suspects the poisoning is “another unscrupulous attempt of the British authorities to discredit Russia.”
