Russia’s foreign minister has accused the U.K. of behaving in a “high-handed” and “misleading” manner after Downing Street implicated Moscow in the attempted murder of a former Russian spy and his daughter on British soil.Sergei Lavrov said Wednesday that Russia had no motive to poison Sergei Skripal, a former Russian spy-turned-double agent for the U.K., and his daughter Julia on March 4. The pair were found slumped on a bench in Salisbury, England, after being exposed to a nerve gas and remain in a critical condition in hospital.The U.K. government demanded Monday to know if Russia was involved in the attack, and if not, how a Russian-produced deadly nerve agent had got into the U.K.
