A spokesman for the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, noted that the German Federal Chancellor seems to have forgotten about the existence of a fundamental legal norm - the presumption of innocence.
Russia Today leads Dmitry Peskov's statement:
It (the statement of Angela Merkel) is certainly not encouraging, because here we are talking about the presumption of innocence. The Russian president has repeatedly reiterated that Russia has nothing to do with the case of the attempted murder of a British spy in the UK.
Recall that Vladimir Putin called the British accusations against Russia for nonsense, nonsense and nonsense, noting that the last attempt was to benefit Skripal several days before the elections and several months before the start of the World Cup.
Let us somehow preserve the sobriety of mind and still, first and foremost, expect evidence from the UK that the statements made from London at the highest and highest level have at least something real. The basic understanding of law, probably, first of all speaks about this necessity.
In Britain, they don’t provide any evidence, and they don’t seem to provide it, because they simply don’t.
