Russian Federation seeks to discuss spy poisoning with UK

Two days later, at a UN Security Council meeting, Moscow's UN ambassador Vasily Nebenzia said Britain's main goal had been "to discredit and even delegitimise" Russian Federation with "unsubstantiated accusations".

The two then swapped insults at the United Nations Security Council on Thursday where Russian Federation warned Britain it was "playing with fire" by accusing Moscow.

Britain has given samples of the nerve agent used in Salisbury to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, an global watchdog that is expected to release its findings soon.

As reports emerged of the former Russian spy and his daughter Yulia being offered new identities overseas to protect them from any further attacks, a chemical weapons expert said the form of Novichok used was a "boutique" version meant to delay death.

The United Kingdom was requested to reduce the number of its diplomatic staff in Russia so that it would match the number of Russian diplomats in Great Britain.

Skripal has been admitted to the Salisbury district hospital and has now been declared as out of danger.

Johnson said the Labour leader was playing "Putin's game" by refusing to say "unequivocally. that the Russian state was responsible".

She said she had found the incident "disorientating", without providing any further details on the attack.

Companies can't put warranty stickers on their products and claim the warranty is void if you remove the sticker, the FTC says. The Xbox One has a sticker that, if broken or removed, implies to Microsoft that a third party has opened the device.

The newspaper also quoted an anonymous source, saying: "The Kremlin wanted to get its agents out of Britain before the Novichok could be identified".

The UK is considering the option of sending poisoned Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia to the United States with new identities.

In a tweet, the Russian embassy in London said: "We congratulate Yulia Skripal on her recovery".

While her 66-year-old father is also awake now, British officials have warned that life for the Skripals "would likely never be the same again" and that they could have injuries that would "require ongoing medical care".

The spokesperson said Yakovenko had sent a "personal note" to Johnson asking for the meeting.

Mr Uglev said they would be unlikely to secure absolute proof of Russian involvement from the analysis. In a statement on its website, the embassy said that its dealings with Britain over the issue had been "utterly unsatisfactory".

The Foreign Office said Russia's response had been unsatisfactory but it will consider the request. She accused its diplomats of a new "diversionary tactic".

Russian Federation last week seized on remarks by the head of the British research establishment carrying out tests that it could not definitively pinpoint Russian Federation as the source. "That is when politicians from the targeted countries join in", Johnson wrote in the Sunday Times.
