Russia calls British accusations of Skripal poisoning a 'circus show'

The spokesperson of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, has called a statement by British Prime Minister Theresa May regarding Moscow's possible involvement in the poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal a "circus show in the British parliament."  

According to Zakharova, this is yet another information and political campaign “based on provocation.”

"Before composing new fairy tales, let someone in the Kingdom tell what the outcome [was] of previous cases of Litvinenko, Berezovsky and Perepilichny and many others who mysteriously died on British soil," Zakharova added.

British Prime Minister Teresa May said that Russia "is very likely" to blame for the poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.
