"And ready to reject the Kremlin's brazen determination to undermine the global rules-based order". Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that the release of the information on the suspects "revealed nothing".

Britain on Wednesday announced charges in absentia against two alleged Russian agents, and British Prime Minister Theresa May has accused the Russian government of orchestrating the March attack on ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in the English city of Salisbury.

Authorities say the two suspects used Novichok, the Russian-made military grade nerve agent, to poison Skripal and daughter, both of whom survived.

The Kremlin called the accusations "unacceptable".

"And it will be countered by a strong worldwide partnership of allies".

Prime Minister Theresa May hinted that Britain would retaliate using "all the tools in our national security apparatus", but it is hard to imagine what it - or any Western power - can do to prevent this kind of attack.

Peskov also said that Russian Federation "has no reasons" to investigate the two individuals charged on Wednesday because Britain has not asked for legal assistance in the case.

The leaders of the US, France, Germany and Canada have backed Theresa May by voicing "full confidence" in Britain's assessment that the two suspects for the Salisbury poisonings were members of Russia's GRU intelligence service.

Cranberries singer drowned accidentally in bath: United Kingdom coroner
The Cranberries released a statement on Twitter today saying, "Dolores will live on eternally in her music". O'Riordan was in London at the time of her death for a short recording session.

Washington was gripped by speculation over the author of the column, which painted a damning portrait of the President's "amorality" and his "impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective" leadership style, and claimed that many members of his own administration were secretly working to rein him in.

Ben Wallace said Putin and his government "controls, funds and directs" the military intelligence unit known as the GRU, which Britain believes used Novichok to try to kill ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal.

As a permanent member of the Security Council, Russia will be represented at Thursday's meeting - and called on by Britain to update members on progress in the Salisbury investigation - alongside United Kingdom allies such as the U.S. and France.

Britain has said it is not going to seek the men's extradition because Russian law does not allow for the extradition of its nationals to be tried overseas.

"I suspect that they wanted to give a message to those Russians who were living elsewhere who had been involved in matters relating to the Russian state", May said to parliament.

US President Donald Trump, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian PM Justin Trudeau issued a joint statement with Mrs May agreeing with the British assessment that the operation was "almost certainly approved at a senior government level" in Moscow.

A European Arrest Warrant has been issued for Petrov and Boshirov, but they are highly unlikely to stand trial, as the Russian constitution forbids the extradition of its citizens. By 5pm, Mr Skripal and his daughter Yulia had collapsed on a park bench near a shopping mall in critical condition. Det Sgt Nick Bailey also fell ill after responding to the incident in Salisbury. On June 27, local man Charlie Rowley discovered the abandoned perfume bottle in a charity bin in Salisbury, and took it to his home in nearby Amesbury.
