The UK Foreign Office has admitted it deleted the tweet which directly stated that the nerve agent, identified by the UK as A-234 – also known as Novichok, used in the Salisbury poisoning of the Skripals came direct from Russia.

This week British government scientists admitted they couldn’t tell where the poison came from, undermining a number of claims to come out of the Foreign Office.

The British Government directly accuses the Kremlin of being behind the chemical attack on former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter.  

Bizarrely, the Foreign Office denies Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson claimed the novichock “categorically” came from Russia, despite a recorded interview clearly showing he did.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) itself stated: “Analysis by world-leading experts at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory at Porton Down made clear that this was a military-grade Novichok nerve agent produced in Russia.”

However, the tweet was deleted an FCO statement said: “An HMA Moscow briefing on 22 March was tweeted in real time … One of the tweets was truncated & did not accurately report our Ambassador’s words. We have removed this tweet.”
