'I made this recording, that was Yulia, ' she said. Gary Aitkenhead of Porton Down Defence Laboratory, told Britain's Sky News analysts identified the poison as military-grade novichok, but couldn't verify if it was made in Russian Federation. Russian Federation vehemently denied the accusations and accused Britain of waging a deliberate defamation campaign.
It said Friday that a cat was also found "in a distressed state and a decision was taken by a veterinary surgeon to euthanize the animal to alleviate its suffering".
But the Foreign Office on Wednesday deleted a tweet from last month that said scientists at Britain's defense research facility, the Porton Down laboratory, had identified the substance as "made in Russian Federation".
Kelly Currie, U.S. deputy ambassador to the United Nations, voiced support for Britain's position, saying that the meeting was an attempt by Russian Federation "to use the Council for political gains".
In response, British Ambassador Karen Pierce said London had conveyed Russia's demand for consular access to the spy's daughter Yulia Skripal and that the British government had acted entirely properly within global convention. The Kremlin has repeatedly denied its involvement.
In response, more than two dozen Western allies including Britain, Australia, the United States and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation have ordered out over 150 Russian diplomats in a show of solidarity.
The poisoning has chilled relations between Russian Federation and the West, producing a wave of diplomatic expulsions unseen even at the height of the Cold War. "A lot of other countries might like to let the matter drop before it worsens relations with Russian Federation further, so Moscow's strategy may not be a joke", he added.
