MOSCOW- Russia has denied its involvement behind the poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skirpal and his daughter Yulia in Britain.

UK prime Minister Theresa May has given Russia until Tuesday to respond as to how a Russian nerve agent came to be used in poisoning the father-daughter duo.

Russia's Foreign Minister while denying the blame said Moscow was ready to cooperate with Britain but they rejected the offer of help.

The United States, NATO and the European Union have all backed Britain in the diplomatic crisis.
