London ignored most questions about Skripal case - Russian Foreign Ministry

MOSCOW. May 4 (Interfax) - The United Kingdom has either given pro-forma answers or ignored Russia's questions about the poisoning of former Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said at a press briefing on Friday.

"Moscow has sent about 40 notes containing approximately 60 questions [about the Skripal case]. No answers were given to two-thirds of those questions, and the rest received runaround answers," Zakharova said.

The UK keeps "misrepresenting facts and using harsh confrontational rhetoric," she said.

This attitude is damaging bilateral relations, Zakharova said.
