πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ Theresa May: Skripal poisoning ‘highly likely’ by Russia | Al Jazeera English

The United States has backed Britain’s assessment that Russia is “likely responsible” for the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter in the UK.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says those responsible must face serious consequences.

Earlier, British Prime Minister Theresa May called on Moscow to explain the attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter, who remain in critical condition in hospital.

But the Kremlin denies any involvement.
