Kremlin Sorry To Hear Of Death Of Uk Woman Exposed To Nerve Agent


MOSCOW – The Kremlin said on Monday it was sorry to hear that a British woman, Dawn Sturgess, had died after being poisoned by a nerve agent, but said any suggestion that Russia was involved would be “quite absurd.”

British authorities said Sturgess, 44, died on Sunday after being poisoned by the same nerve agent that struck a former Russian spy, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter Yulia in March, triggering a crisis in relations between Western capitals and Moscow.

“We continue to be deeply worried by the continuing presence of these poisonous substances on British territory,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters when asked about the death of Sturgess. “We consider that it is a danger not only for the British, but for other Europeans.”
