Britain has openly accused Russian Federation of being responsible for poisoning the Skripals with Novichok, a family of advanced nerve agents developed by the Soviet Union in the 1970 and 1980s.
Russia's embassy to Britain said on Monday it would regard the Amesbury poisoning incident which has left one woman, Dawn Sturgess dead, as an anti-Russian provocation in the absence of access to the investigation.
The poisoning in March of the Skripals with Novichok was the first known offensive use of such a chemical weapon on European soil since World War Two.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russian Federation was "deeply concerned" about the incident in Amesbury - but said accusations that it was involved are "absurd".
British police say they believe the latest victims of poisoning by nerve agent Novichok must have handled the material's container.
Ms Sturgess was rushed to hospital after becoming ill on June 30.

Police say they don't think Sturgess and Rowley visited any of the locations decontaminated after the Skripals' poisoning.
Britain "understands that direct dialogue between the two superpowers is capable of reducing the level of confrontation, gradually raising the level of trust between our countries, and destroying the lies fabricated against Russia", Zheleznyak said in July 9 comments released by his party.
