washington - The United States supports the British authorities to hold Russia provisionally responsible for poisoning the former Russian double spy and his daughter. That is what Minister Rex Tillerson said on Monday.
In a statement, Tillerson states that Russia is 'supposedly responsible' for the attack on Sergey (66) and Joelia Skripal (33) in southern England last Sunday. According to the Minister, both those who committed the attack and those who gave the order must face 'serious consequences'.
The British Prime Minister Theresa May considers it very likely that Russia is behind the attack and called the Russian ambassador on the carpet. The Russian Foreign Ministry finds the accusations about the poison 'a circus. '
