UK says Russia watched ex-spy's daughter for at least 5 years

SAVED The pair were poisoned by a nerve agent on March 4
Russia's Foreign Minister on Friday accused his British counterpart of distorting the findings of the world chemical watchdog's investigation into a spy poisoning the United Kingdom blames on Moscow.
"We will now work closely with our partners to clarify grotesque use of this weapon and convene OPCW council to discuss next steps", Johnson said Thursday through a statement collected by Reuters.
The news which has been hailed as a significant milestone, comes just over a month after the pair were found slumped over on a park bench in the English city, after they were poisoned by a deadly nerve agent.
Sedwill asserted that much in a letter that he addressed to NATO's secretary-general, Jens Stoltenberg, explaining Britain's conclusion that the Russian government is to blame for the military-grade nerve agent used against Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury.
BORIS JOHNSON has pledged to "stamp out" the use of chemical weapons after global inspectors confirmed a nerve agent poisoned Sergei and Yulia Skripal.
The findings were welcomed by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who said they backed Britain's assertion that only Russian Federation could have carried out the attack in March.
U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May rallied allies in the U.S., Europe, Australia and Canada to conduct coordinated expulsions of more than 150 Russian diplomats last month after she told parliament it was "highly likely" that Russia was responsible.
He said: "We want to meet Yulia and we want proof that she is alright and is in good condition".
Mr Skripal was a former GRU officer, who was convicted of espionage in 2004. "It is unlikely that Novichoks could be made and deployed by non-state actors (eg a criminal or terrorist group), especially at the level of purity confirmed by OPCW".
Russian Federation vehemently denies being behind the attack in Salibury.
"Russia's chemical weapons programme continued after the collapse of the Soviet Union".
Russian Federation retaliated with tit-for-tat expulsions, while its spy chief Sergei Naryshkin last week accused U.K and US secret services of carrying out the poisoning as a "grotesque provocation".
"There are over 100 British journalists here, why are none of you calling to meet Miss Skripal - not a single person?"
Sir Mark said Russian Federation failed to declare its work on Novichoks when it ratified the Chemical Weapons Convention.
She also said she would give interviews to the media in time, but asked the press to have patience while she recovers.
The Russian embassy in London immediately raised doubts over the authenticity of the statement, claiming it "only strengthens suspicions that we are dealing with a forcible isolation of the Russian citizen".
