UK defense lab: No ID yet for source of nerve agent

UK defense lab: No ID yet for source of nerve agent:

LONDON (AP) — Britain’s defense laboratory acknowledged Tuesday it hasn’t tracked down the source of the nerve agent that poisoned a Russian ex-spy, a statement the Kremlin said proved that British accusations of Moscow’s involvement were baseless.

Scientists at the U.K’s Porton Down lab previously identified the poison as a Soviet-developed type of nerve agent known as Novichok. The British government has said the only plausible explanation was that it came from Russia and blamed Russia for the attack on the former double agent and his adult daughter.

H/t reader squodgy:

“Whoops!!

We can’t identify the source????

But it was definitely the Ruskies.

Give us strength.”
