Johnson: 'overwhelmingly likely' that Putin ordered spy nerve attack

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said earlier on Friday that it was overwhelmingly likely that Putin himself made the decision to strike down a former Russian agent on English soil.

The suggestion of Mr Putin's involvement was branded "unpardonable" by Moscow. "That is why we are at odds with Russian Federation". Russian officials say they were willing to help in the investigation, but Britain clearly is uninterested in that.

The UK continues to refuse to cooperate with Russian Federation on the investigation as well as to provide access to samples of the substance allegedly used in Salisbury.

The attack in Salisbury, which has also left a police officer in serious condition, was highlighted by the US Treasury as one of the justifications for its stronger stance against Moscow.

Ukraine has sent letters to the United Nations, protesting the Russian presidential election in Crimea scheduled for Sunday and urging the worldwide community to impose sanctions on the poll organizers, local media reported Saturday. "Who knows what we Put in", the graffiti read.

"Any reference or mention of our president in this regard is a shocking and unforgivable breach of diplomatic rules of decent behavior", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, according to the agency.
