Russia ready for 'serious discussion' with UK - Lavrov

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Moscow is ready for a "serious discussion" with the United Kingdom on the poisoning of former agent Sergey Skripal and his daughter on British soil. He reiterated Russia "has not seen any evidence" of its involvement in the incident, while the UK insists two members of Russian military intelligence carried out the attack. Lavrov called the British claims "baseless accusations."

"The 'highly-likely' principle won't fly here, even though our British colleagues employ it to demonize Russia and to turn all their European partners against us. This is being done during the Brexit process which is probably why London steps up these efforts," Lavrov stated.
