UK can’t ignore ‘legitimate questions’ over spy poisoning: Moscow

MOSCOW: Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Thursday London cannot ignore Moscow’s “legitimate questions” over the poisoning of an ex-spy, as he called for a “substantial and responsible” probe into the case.
“It will not be possible to ignore the legitimate questions we are asking,” he said hours before a meeting of the UN Security Council, which is due to discuss the spiralling diplomatic crisis between Russia and the West.
