Russia has denounced as a “circus show” British Prime Minister Theresa May's allegations that Moscow was highly likely behind a nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy in England.
"It is a circus show in the British parliament," Russia’s TASS news agency quoted the country’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova as saying on Monday. "The conclusion is obvious: It's another political information campaign, based on a provocation."
Zakharova made the remarks shortly after the British premier said it was "highly likely" that Moscow was responsible for poisoning former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia on March 4.
The 66-year-old former spy and his 33-year-old daughter have been hospitalized since then after they were found unconscious on a bench outside a shopping center in the southern English city of Salisbury.
