Ambassadors to Russia Invited to Meeting on Skripal Incident

Ambassadors from all diplomatically-connected nations with Russia were invited to a Wednesday straight talk discussion of the Skripal incident – what's entirely absent in the West, Russophobic hysteria instead.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova issued a statement saying:
"We've invited all the ambassadors accredited in Russia to a meeting with the top officials and experts of the department for nonproliferation and arms control," adding:
"The main topic will be the situation around the UK's allegations on the use of a nerve agent on its territory."
"(A)ll the allegations only distract attention from the main issue, which is the UK's reluctance to provide any materials to Russia on the background of showering it with loutish accusations."
