Russia does not exclude Skripal pets were eliminated for being "inconvenient witnesses".

Breaking News about the Skripal case.  It seems that Skripal's pets in the British city of Salisbury were eliminated for being "uncomfortable witnesses, "a representative of the Russian Embassy in London told Sputnik.

Russia had requested the British Foreign Ministry information on Skripal's pets by arguing that the issue is of great importance in the context of the investigation of the poisoning of former double agent Sergey Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury.

On April 6, the Ministry for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs of the United Kingdom informed Sputnik that two Skripal guinea pigs that remained in their cordoned house died of dehydration and that one of their cats was sacrificed for being too "stressed" when the veterinarians finally entered the house.

He added that the three animals were incinerated in the military laboratory of Porton Down.

In addition, the spokesman of the Russian embassy said that Moscow is also concerned that the pets were locked for several days in the house cordoned off, which suggests that the police did not even visit the alleged crime site.

He noted that such treatment of the Skripal's pets violates British laws on violence against animals and the rights of their owners.

At the same time, he recalled that, according to one of Skripal's nieces, they had two cats, and the whereabouts of the second is still unknown.

Skripal, an ex-official of the Russian military intelligence recruited in the 90s by the British secret service MI6 and naturalized in the United Kingdom, and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious at the beginning of March near a shopping center in Salisbury.

The police established that the two were poisoned with a toxic substance with neuro paralyzing action.

The daughter of Skripal was the first to regain consciousness, at the end of March, and on April 5 the British police released her first statement that did not contain any details of what happened on March 4 indicating only that it was a "disorienting episode".

On April 6 it was announced that Sergei Skripal also came out of critical condition and responds well to treatment.
