Relations between Russia and Britain sharply deteriorated against the background of the incident in Salisbury, where ex-colonel of the GRU
reserve, Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yuliya, who worked for the British special services were poisoned. London claims that the Russian state is involved in the poisoning of the nerve agent A234. Moscow categorically denies this.
