Foreign Minister Klimkin: Ukraine to continue supporting UK in countering hybrid warfare
Ukrainian Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin says Ukraine will continue supporting the United Kingdom in countering Russia's means of hybrid warfare.
"British investigators into the Skripals case have revealed what had to be revealed. We have always stood in solidarity with our British friends and partners in countering the hybrid methods used by Russia and we will continue supporting them in the struggle!" Klimkin tweeted on September 5.
As UNIAN reported, the British police identified two Russian citizens suspected of poisoning the former Russian spy, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter Yulia. These are Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov.
Former employee of the Russian GRU, Skripal, and his daughter were found unconscious in the British city of Salisbury on March 4. The investigation concluded that they had been poisoned with a nerve Novichok-type agent, developed in the USSR.
Their poisoning triggered a diplomatic row between the United Kingdom and the Russian Federation.
