Jeremy Corbyn demands answers and evidence of Russian culpability in the poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter: “How has she (PM Theresa May) responded to the Russian government’s request for a sample of the agent used in the Salisbury attack to run its own tests? Has high resolution trace analysis been run on a sample of the nerve agent? And has that revealed any evidence as to the location of its production or the identity of its perpetrators?”
Corbyn’s spokesman compared the evidence for direct Russian involvement, with the shaky case for war in Iraq.
Stephen F. Cohen, professor emeritus of Russian studies, history, and politics at New York University and Princeton University calls it reckless Cold War behavior on the part of the British government.
