UNSC discusses Russian spy poisoning
The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) late Wednesday held an emergency meeting at Britain’s request to discuss the poisoning of a Russian former double agent in England.
A British U.N. envoy said Wednesday that a thorough investigation indicated that Russia was behind the attempted assassination of a former Russian spy in an English town.
“On the 4th of March, a weapon so horrific that it is banned from use in war was used in a peaceful city in my country,” British Deputy U.N. Ambassador Jonathan Allen told Security Council members, referring to an attack using a chemical weapon. “This was a reckless act, carried out by people who disregard the sanctity of life, who are indifferent if innocents are caught up in their attacks, he added.” Former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, were found unconscious on a park bench in Salisbury and were rushed to a hospital, where they remain in serious condition.
