Like Simon Jenkins, some readers are sceptical about the British government’s accusations against Russia after the use of novichok in the UK – but others think the circumstantial evidence is enough to implicate Vladmir Putin’s regime
Simon Jenkins asks where the evidence is to support the allegation that the Russian state was responsible for the poisonings in Wiltshire (Why wait for evidence when you can just accuse Russia?, 6 July) Perhaps it is worth reiterating some facts.
We know that Russia invented and developed the nerve agent used in Salisbury. We know that a Russian double agent was the target. We know that Putin has a track record of ruthlessly eliminating his enemies.
