Prime Minister Scott Morrison says Australia is in close contact with the United Kingdom to get Russia to respond for an attack of nerve agents on British soil, demanding that the Kremlin reveal its chemical weapons cache.
Two Russian military intelligence officers were responsible for Salisbury's attack on the former spy Sergei Skripel and his daughter Yulia, according to the police in the United Kingdom.
The investigators also concluded that Russian leaders authorized the attack on March 4.
Mr. Morrison said that the atrocious attack with the nerve agent Novichok was a clear and direct violation of international law.
"Australia shares the anger and outrage of the UK at this dangerous and deliberate act by Russia, which also puts the British public, police and other first responders at risk," Morrison said in a statement on Thursday.
"We are in contact with the United Kingdom on the importance of holding Russia accountable and reaffirming our support for calls on Russia to fully reveal the scope of its chemical weapons program."
