Earlier, the resource published an investigation, allegedly proving the ties of suspects in Skripals' poisoning - Petrov and Boshirov - with the Russian special services.

Bellingcat, a UK-based open source and social media investigation site, has conducted no investigation of its own into the Salisbury incident, instead, it released data leaked by intelligence services ahead of the British delegation’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told the Rossiya-1 television channel.

"Bellingcat conducted no probe into the Salisbury incident. Belligcat had been silent for six months, saying nothing about what had happened there. They simply released information they had been given ahead of the British delegation’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly," TASS quoted Zakharova.
