White House condemns poisoning of ex-spy after United Kingdom points to Russian Federation

It was also revealed yesterday that a Russian nerve agent Novichok was used in the attack.

But when asked ― three times ― at a White House press briefing about Russia's link to the poisoning or any possible repercussions for the country from the U.S., Sanders carefully did not say "Russia" - or otherwise address who may have been responsible for the attack. "We offer the fullest condemnation".

The White House on Monday condemned the poisoning of an ex-Russian spy in the United Kingdom earlier this month but declined to say whether Moscow was responsible. "I think they're working through even some of the details of this".

British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday it was highly likely Moscow was to blame after Britain identified the substance as part of a group of nerve agents developed by the Soviet military in the 1970s and 1980s.

"Like I just said", Sanders interrupted, repeating herself, "we stand with our ally and we fully support them and are ready if we can be of any assistance".

She gave Russian Federation until the end of Tuesday to provide a "credible" response.

The Russian Foreign Ministry has dismissed the U.K.'s accusations about Skripal's poisoning as a "circus show".

The Trump administration has faced criticism for its muted criticisms of Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin after the USA intelligence community determined Russia sought to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, have been in hospital in a critical condition since March 4 when they were found unconscious on a bench outside a shopping centre in the southern English cathedral city of Salisbury.

Russian Federation reportedly dismissed the British claims a "circus show", a "provocation" and "nonsense", even suggesting the attack on the Skripals may have been a false flag.
