The pair had visited a pizzeria and a pub before collapsing and although officials have said there is no public health danger, they have advised anyone who was in the vicinity to wash their clothes and clean all jewelry, mobile phones and spectacles with antiseptic wipes.

Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu says 250 counterterrorism officers are working "around the clock" on the case.

"Well he's a nice man, I'm told, maybe he wants to claim a place in history by making some bold statements", Lavrov said.

Britain claims the father-daughter pair was exposed to a nerve agent and Russian Federation is responsible for the act, which Moscow denies.

"The temperature of Russian-British relations drops to minus 23 but we are not afraid of the cold weather", Russia's embassy in London said beside the picture of a thermometer surrounded by ice and reading minus 23 degrees Celsius.

He was sentenced to 13 years in prison in 2006, and in 2010 was given refuge in Britain after being exchanged for Russian spies.

"The US believes that Russia is responsible for the attack on two people in the United Kingdom using a military-grade nerve agent", Haley said in her remarks at a UN Security Council emergency session on Wednesday, blasting the Russian government for flouting worldwide law, the CNN report said.

President Vladimir Putin, a former KGB spy who is poised to win a fourth term in an election on Sunday, has so far only said publicly that Britain should get to the bottom of what has happened.

Nimmo said, in a report out this week, that Russian Federation had used the same tactics in 2016 when Dutch investigators blamed it for shooting down MH17, a passenger flight, over Ukraine in 2014, and when a British High Court judge blamed it, in a 328-page report, of having murdered Litvinenko in London 10 years earlier.

Skripal and his daughter Yulia have been critically ill since they were found unconscious on a bench in the southern English city of Salisbury on March 4. "We call upon them to abandon the language of ultimatums and threats and return to the legal framework of the chemical convention, which makes it possible to resolve this kind of situation", Shulgin stated at the OPCW session.

Mrs May said the nerve agent used to poison Mr Skripal was developed in Russian Federation and she considers Russian Federation as highly likely to be behind the attack.

It has cast Britain as a post-colonial power unsettled by its impending exit from the European Union, and even suggested London fabricated the attack to whip up anti-Russian hysteria.

While Britain has accused the Russian state of ordering the poisoning of the Skripals, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson took it a step further Friday and said it's "overwhelmingly likely" that Putin himself ordered the attack.

The Western leaders said the use of the Novichok toxin was a clear breach of the Chemical Weapons Convention and worldwide law.

It ordered the diplomats to leave within a week.

Macron later told reporters he would decide in the coming days what measures France would take against Russian Federation over the attack.

He remains in a serious condition in hospital but is said to be making good progress.

Alexander Yakovenko told the Russian agency the information was "not enough" for Russia.
