Kremlin: Russia had no role in spy poisoning

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Moscow is in no way connected to the poisoning of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Britain, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday, adding that the accusations against Russia are groundless.

Russia remains open to cooperating with a British investigation into the case, but any possible measures by London against Moscow will illicit a response, Peskov said.

He said it was too early to say what that response would be.
