Russia's ambassador to the United Kingdom on Thursday questioned Britain's investigation of the spy poisoning case that prompted almost 30 countries and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to expel more than 150 Russian diplomats last week.
Sergei Skripal, the former Russian spy poisoned with nerve agent last month, is no longer in critical condition and is "improving rapidly". The Skripals were found last month unresponsive on a bench in Salisbury, England.
At the United Nations Security Council meeting on Thursday, Nebenzia, Russia's envoy, called the allegations a "fake story" and said the UK was "playing with fire and they will be sorry".
"Don't take something for granted".
"We can't give an advance approval to results of the investigation, in which we aren't taking part and which is kept secret", he said. "Why keep it secret?"
Mirzayanov also said it was hard to establish where the nerve agent came from but added he understood the reasons for Britain's claim. "It has nothing to do with Russian Federation", he said.
"My strength is growing daily", she was quoted as saying in comments released by the police.
"As you will appreciate, I won't be giving any further updates at this time".
In the clip, the two discussed Viktoria getting a visa.
She said she and her father were fine and there were no life changing injuries.
"I made this recording, that was Yulia", she said.
"We will not trust in them, we would like to check them but they are not letting us do that". These are our people. "They told me that everything depends on London and that (Prime Minister) Theresa May is on holiday so there is no one to sign on to this".
The Sun tabloid said Skripal's cat was named Nash Van Drake and was taken to the nearby British defence laboratory at Porton Down where the pet was put down. British intelligence traced the nerve agent used to a Russian facility in the closed city of Shikhany.
"It's not true", Yakovenko said.
"We are confident that an objective probe will ultimately establish that the claims against Russian Federation by UK Government are null and void", the embassy wrote.
"It suits Russian Federation to turn the whole business into a farce". Russian Federation rejected those conclusions. Russia, which requested Thursday's council meeting, denies any involvement. The two rodents were found dead at the Skripals' home after it was sealed off by investigators.
An inquiry into the death of former spy Litvinenko, who was poisoned with a rare radioactive isotope at a London hotel in 2006, echoing the Skripal case, found President Putin "probably" approved the murder.
And there have been several others. "It's a very serious issue and we have to know the truth, at least by what it is supported", Kovalenko said.
His daughter, Yulia, who also fell sick in the nerve-agent attack, is on the mend as well, she added. His daughter was in Salisbury for a visit from her home in Russian Federation.
The Hague-based Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons voted against the Russian proposal, but Moscow said the number of countries that abstained from the vote suggested many have doubts about Britain's accusations.
