'Highly Likely' Russia Responsible For Spy Poisoning: Theresa May

Theresa May gave Moscow until end of Tuesday to disclose details of Novichok nerve agents programme.

London:  British Prime Minister Theresa May said Monday it was "highly likely" that Moscow was behind the poisoning of a Russian former double agent.

"It is highly likely that Russia was responsible for the act against Sergei and (his daughter) Yulia Skripal," May said, telling British lawmakers the military-grade nerve agent used in the attack was of a type developed by Russia.
