Russia’s embassy in the United Kingdom said on Sunday it shares the striving of British citizen Charlie Rowley, who was allegedly exposed to Novichok nerve agent in Amesbury last summer, to learn the truth about the incident but stresses that Russia is not subject to jurisdiction of the British state.
Axar.az reports citing Russian media.
The Mirror newspaper reported earlier citing Rowley’s lawyer Patrick Maguire that the man planned to sue Russia to be paid a compensation of 1 mln pound sterling ($1.25 mln).
On June 30, 2018, two British nationals, Dawn Sturgess, 44, and Charles Rowley, 45, were taken to hospital in critical condition in the British town of Amesbury. The Metropolitan Police claimed that the two had been exposed to Novichok, the same nerve agent that had been allegedly used to poison former Russian military intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury.
