Theresa May told the Russian premier,Vladimir Putin at the G20 Summit on Friday in Osaka, Japan that, “the use of a deadly nerve agent on the streets of Salisbury formed part of a wider pattern of unacceptable behaviour and was a truly despicable act that led to the death of a British citizen, Dawn Sturgess”

“She was clear that the UK has irrefutable evidence that Russia was behind the attack – based on painstaking investigations and co-operation with our allies.

“She said that this behaviour could never be repeated, and that the UK wants to see the two individuals responsible brought to justice.

“The prime minister underlined that we remain open to different relationship, but for that to happen the Russian government must choose a different path.

“The prime minister said the UK would continue to unequivocally defend liberal democracy and protect the human rights and equality of all groups, including LGBT people.”
