Yulia Skripal Issues Statement, Declines Help From Russian Embassy

Britain says that means only a state with a sophisticated laboratory could have manufactured it.

It has now been more than five weeks since she and her father were found slumped on a bench in central Salisbury on 4 March after they were poisoned, prompting worldwide condemnation of Russian Federation for its alleged involvement.

They did not explicitly blame Russian Federation for the attack, but the analysis bolsters the UK's conclusion that Moscow is to blame.

Yulia Skripal, poisoned daughter of Russian ex-spy Sergei, has rejected assistance from the Russian embassy "at the moment".

Britain has called for an OPCW meeting next week to discuss the results of the organization's report.

The OPCW did not explicitly name Novichok in its published summary, say where the poison may have come from or assign blame for the attack.

Hamas calls for more protests
Ain Media became a USAID program beneficiary last month under a program that supports private sector development. A Hamas fighter was killed by an Israeli strike in the Gaza Strip earlier Thursday, the health ministry said .

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Moscow would not believe any conclusions about the poisoning unless Russian experts were given access to the investigation.

Moscow rejected all of the United Kingdom's accusations, saying that a program aimed at developing such a substance had existed neither in the Soviet Union nor in Russian Federation.

Testing by OPCW laboratories, the details of which were kept confidential, also found the substance used in Salisbury to be of "a high purity", which supports the British government's assertion that a state was involved.

"We do everything we can to obtain this information via the British Foreign Office by sending diplomatic notes and by publicly calling upon London to disclose this information, to allow us to ensure that they [Sergei and Yulia Skripal] aren't in danger; so that the whole world could be certain that these people aren't being held hostage and are not taking part in some terrible game", she explained.

The nerve agent Novichok wss found smeared near the front of the Skripal house in Salisbury.

U.K. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson quickly commented on the OPCW's report, saying that the results prove Britain's thesis on the matter.

Investigators said police in other jurisdictions, such as Alberta, also observed the live-stream sexual abuse of children. Authorities are urging anyone who is aware of online child sexual abuse to call their local police.

Russia's embassy in London said it would "demand to meet with Yulia and Sergei Skripal, whose situation ever more resembles forced captivity or deprivation of freedom".

"There can be no doubt what was used and there remains no alternative explanation about who was responsible - only Russian Federation has the means, motive and record", he said.

The report comes a day after Yulia Skripal, 33, said that she had a "a totally different life than the ordinary one I left just over a month ago".

In his speech, Fleming also revealed that GCHQ had carried out a major cyber offensive campaign against Islamic State (IS) militants, the first time, he said, Britain had systematically and persistently degraded an enemy's efforts as part of the wider action.

Sergei Skripal was imprisoned in Russian Federation for selling secrets to British intelligence in the 1990s but was exchanged in a spy swap in 2010.

Russia's Embassy in London is questioning the authenticity of a statement attributed to one of the victims of a nerve agent attack in England, saying it has been crafted to support Britain's version of events.
