Russia accuses Britain of using Skripal affair to rally EU allies

BERLIN, Sept 14 (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday Britain was using the case of poisoned former double agent Sergei Skripal to rally European partners behind it at a time when Brexit was isolating London.

“There are no facts which we can address meaningfully,” Lavrov told reporters in Berlin after meeting German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas. “It is pointless to have this discussion and we confirmed to our German partners that we see no proof.”
