On March 4, 2018, a former GRU worker, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter, Yulia, were poisoned in Salisbury.

British Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt called an interview given by Russians Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Bashirov, the suspects in poisoning of ex-colonel of the GRU Sergei Skripal and his daughter, “funny”. Press Association agency writes about this.

“And although it was funny when we saw interviews with suspects (of involvement in the incident) in Salisbury, in fact, behind all this is a far more evil purpose”, — believes the head of the British diplomacy.

Hunt also made a statement that Russia conducts a foreign policy that aimed to “sow confusion, to create division and to destabilize the (Western) democracy.” “They especially like to do this with the help of manipulative media, fake news, and I’m afraid that RT is part of these efforts,” he suggested.

On March 4, 2018, a former GRU employee, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter, Yulia, were poisoned in Salisbury. The British secret services reported Skripals were poisoned with Novichok chemical substance, after which the victims were hospitalized.

British intelligence agencies believe that GRU employees Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov (whose real names are Alexander Mishkin and Anatoly Chepiga, as claimed by Bellingcat and The Insider), as well as another Russian under a fictitious name Sergei Fedotov (real name - Denis Sergeev) are guilty of the poisoning.
