UN Rejects Russian Call for Joint Probe Into Poisoned Spy
Don’t bring Midsomer Murders into this. But Russia’s U.N. ambassador did just that, citing the kitsch British murder mystery show when denying that his country had anything to do with a nerve agent attack on a former Russian double agent in Britain. He said anyone watching the show would know many “clever ways to kill someone” and that Britain was “playing with fire” by accusing Russia in the mounting diplomatic crisis. The U.N. Security Council denied his request to include Russia in a joint investigation into the poisoning.
