The Russian Embassy in the UK stated that the policy of the UK Government towards Moscow “is a very dangerous game”, as World War 3 fears mounted.
In a statement, the Embassy said: “Current policy of the UK Government towards Russia is a very dangerous game played with the British public opinion, which not only sends the investigation upon an unhelpful political track but also bears the risk of more serious long-term consequences for our relations.”
The Embassy continued to lambast the UK for its “unfounded accusations” and labelled events as a “source of concern”.
It went on: “Literally the next day after the first reports on the poisoning of Mr Skripal and his daughter the Embassy officially requested the Foreign Office to provide information on their health situation and the investigation.
“This is important to us since his issue has become quite a negative factor for the relations between our countries due to the unfounded accusations against Russia advanced by the media.
“British officials don’t provide any additional information and don’t distance themselves from the media campaign. The investigation is being concluded in a non-transparent manner, whenever for the Russian side nor for the public.
“Quite naturally, this is a source of concern.”
The Russian establishment explained that Russian journalists based in the UK have been receiving threats following the incident and stated that Britain has not provided any “detailed information” regarding the health of Mr Skripal and his daughter.
It continued: “The Foreign Office has informed us that the UK considers Mr Skripal as a British citizen.
"Still, the British side has provided no detailed information regarding their health, thus confirming that nobody, including the British media, has obtained access to investigation files since March 4 when the incident occurred.
“We would like to stress once again that we are outraged by the anti-Russian media campaign, condoned by the Government, that influences the investigation and has a psychological effect on British residents.
“Our compatriots and British nationals of Russian origin are worried about their future in this country. UK-based Russian journalists are receiving threats.”
