STOCKHOLM – The Swedish ministry of Foreign Affairs summons the Russian ambassador Tuesday on the mat. The warning comes after the assertion of Moscow that Sweden is the source could be from the nerve gas that was used in the attack on a former Russian double agent in England.
Britain accuses Russia behind the attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury. Both are in critical condition in a hospital. The attack was from the Soviet-era legacy of nerve novitsjok used.
Moscow expressed his disdain about the allegations and a spokesman of the Russian ministry of Foreign Affairs said Saturday that the most likely source of the nerve gas Britain itself, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, the United States or Sweden.
The Swedish Foreign minister, Margot Wallström, called that claim “unacceptable and unfounded.”
