Vladimir Putin DEMANDS answers as United Kingdom experts CAN'T confirm Russian Federation poisoned spy

Gary Aitkenhead the chief executive of the Porton Down defence laboratory, has said it has'not verified the precise source of the Novichok nerve agent Vladimir Putin DEMANDS answers as United Kingdom experts CAN'T confirm Russian Federation poisoned spy

The head of Britain's military research centre said on Tuesday it was unable yet to say whether the military-grade nerve agent used to poison a Russian former spy last month had been produced in Russia.

Gary Aitkenhead, the chief executive of the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) at Porton Down, said that chemical weapons experts had "not verified the precise source" of the material but making the substance was "probably only within the capabilities of a state actor".

Following his remarks, a British Government spokesperson said Porton Down's identification of Novichok was "only one part of the intelligence picture".

Mr Putin said the type of the nerve agent used in the March 4 poisoning could be made in some 20 nations.

"For us, the situation was appalling from the very beginning, and now, confirmation is gradually starting to come in that the insane accusations, made by the British side a few hours after the assassination attempt [on double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter], are baseless and groundless", Peskov told journalists Tuesday.

After the incident, which was the first known use of a military-grade nerve agent on European soil since the second World War, Britain blamed Russian president Vladimir Putin, and the West expelled about 130 Russian diplomats.

But he told Sky News it was not Porton Down's role to work out where the agent came from.

The embassy claimed that novichok may be present in the UK: "We have also noted that, like in his earlier interview, Mr Aitkenhead is not denying that the lab had developed or keeps stocks of the agent they call "novichok", although, of course, he would not admit it", it added. "If there was any hint that anything that we have would be leaving our four walls, then we wouldn't be allowed to operate".

Britain blames Russian Federation for the March 4 attack on Skripal and his daughter Yulia, a claim Moscow fiercely denies.

The OPCW said Russian Federation had asked for the meeting.

The confidential gathering will start at 10:00 am (0800 GMT) at the OPCW's headquarters in The Hague.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Britian will have to apologise to Russian Federation if there is no proof linking it to the Salisbury attack.

"This Russian initiative is yet again another diversionary tactic, meant to undermine the work of the OPCW in reaching a conclusion", the ministry said in a statement.

Russia requested that the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, a global watchdog agency, conduct an "unbiased investigation" into British and USA -backed claims that the Russians were behind the attack.
