News24xx.com - The former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned with a substance of a nerve-paralytic military type, developed by Russia, said Theresa May to the deputies.

The Prime Minister said, it was "highly likely" that Russia was responsible for the Salisbury attack. Then the Ministry of Foreign Affairs called on the Russian ambassador to explain.

Ms. May said if there is no "reliable answer" by the end of Tuesday, the UK would conclude  there has been an "unlawful use of force" by Moscow.

The chemical used in the attack, the Prime Minister said, has been identified as one of of nerve agents known as Novichok.
 

Mrs May said: "Either this was a direct action by the Russian state against our country, or the Russian government lost control of a potentially catastrophically devastating substance-paralytic action and allowed it to fall into the hands of others."

She said that Foreign Minister Boris Johnson had told the ambassador Moscow should provide "full and complete disclosure" of the Novichok programme to international body the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

Mrs May said the UK should be prepared to take much more extensive measures, and these would be set out in the Commons on Wednesday should there be no adequate explanation from Russia.
