The White House considered the Skripal case "lawlessness" and refused to name the suspects
Washington considers the incident with the poisoning of former Colonel GRU Sergey Skripal in the UK "an outrageous, irresponsible and disorderly lawlessness." About this at a briefing for journalists, said the representative of the White House, Sarah Sanders, reports NBC News.
At the same time, she refused to name the suspects in this incident, offering the US assistance to London in the investigation. "Now we are together with our main ally Great Britain. They continue to investigate this incident. We will work together with Great Britain, we support what it does. We are ready to assist them," Sanders explained.
Earlier on March 12, British Prime Minister Teresa May said that Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned by a nerve agent from a group of fighting gases called "Novichok" allegedly developed in the Soviet Union. She demanded that Moscow provide all the materials of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, otherwise the politician threatened to equate the situation "with the illegal use of force by the Russian state against the United Kingdom."
In the evening of March 4, 66-year-old Skripal and his daughter Julia found unconscious on a bench in the park in Salisbury. They poisoned themselves with a nerve agent and fell into a coma while in the hospital. A total of 21 people were injured by poisoning, including police sergeant Nick Bailey, who first arrived at the scene.
