RUSSIA has risked inflaming tensions with Britain by claiming 13 countries back Vladimir Putin’s response to the poisoning of Sergei Skripal in Salisbury.

Earlier today, Russian officials called an emergency meeting of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) at the Hague.

Moscow said it wanted to “address allegations of non-compliance” with the chemical weapons convention made by the UK against Russia.

Vladmir Putin’s regime has repeatedly denied responsibility for the attack on former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury last month.

On Twitter, the Russian embassy in the Netherlands listed the 13 other countries which apparently supported its joint statement to the OPCW.

The countries listed were Iran, Syria, Pakistan, Cuba, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Venezuela, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Nicaragua.

But the UK Government accused Russia of attempting to undermine the OPCW, as well as engaging in “another diversionary tactic”.

It comes a day after the head of Porton Down said his scientists have not verified that the nerve agent used in Salisbury came from Russia.

Taking aim at Russia, a Foreign Office spokesman said: “Russia has called this meeting to undermine the work of the OPCW.

“Of course, there is no requirement in the chemical weapons convention for the victim of a chemical weapons attack to engage in a joint investigation with the likely perpetrator.”
