Russia: Sergei Skripal's niece slams British ambassador for 'playing with people's lives'

The niece of former double agent Sergei Skripal, Viktoria Skripal, accused UK ambassador to Russia Laurie Bristow of “playing people's lives,” during a press conference in Moscow on Tuesday.

“You see, even the British ambassador to Moscow plays with people's lives. They are people's lives. This is the most important thing on Earth. Life of any person is priceless. Somehow we have decided 'we are such omnipotent people, we have a right to play it,'" she said.

On 26 February, UK ambassador to Russia Laurie Bristow stated that Sergei Skripal and his daughter are alive.

She went to confirm neither she nor Sergei Skripal’s mother had heard anything since Yulia Skripal gave a statement on 24 July 2018.

The Skripals were poisoned by a nerve agent in Salisbury on March 4. The UK has continued to hold Moscow responsible for the incident, while Kremlin has denied any involvement in the affair.
