Russian Embassy in London accuses UK of ‘forcibly detaining’ Skripals

Moscow diplomats have accused Britain of failing to disclose the location and health status of Yulia Skripal, who is a Russian citizen. They say that London is “hiding evidence and putting obstacles in the course of an independent investigation” into last month’s poisoning. “We will continue to insists upon meeting Sergei and Yulia Skripal, whose current situation can more and more easily be described as a forcible detention,” an embassy source in London told RIA. Yulia Skripal was discharged from hospital and taken to a “secure location” on Monday, UK authorities said.
