On Thursday, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson responded to a tweet condemning the Russian government and promising to “work with international partners to ensure justice is done.”
Bailey wrote: “I want to say about this tweet, but I can not, I will not.”
His wife also responded to Johnson’s comments. “Justice is good. Actions speak louder than words,” Sarah Bailey tweeted.
“It’s been almost 2 1/2 years since the events in Salisbury and no justice has been done to Dan and her family and nothing to Scripps, Charlie or us. Now it has happened again,” she said.
“The perpetrators do not see any consequences. It is right for the government to condemn these actions, but will it be forgotten in 2 1/2 years? How do we feel about that. #RIPDawn.”
Her partner Charlie Rowley was also hospitalized, but was later discharged. Scripps also survived the attack.
A former KGB agent who ended up working for British intelligence made contact with Bailey Novichok while investigating Scripps poisoning. UK prosecutors said in 2018 that they had enough evidence to charge the two Russians with conspiracy to commit murder, but that they had not applied to extradite the men because the Russian constitution did not allow it.
The Kremlin has consistently denied involvement in those high-profile attacks. But Western governments, independent investigators and Russian-observers see a consistent pattern of Russian state involvement in killings within the country and abroad.
But US President Donald Trump – who has been sharply critical of his soft approach to Russia – has remained virtually silent about Navalny’s poisoning, and Wednesday’s response came from a spokesman for the National Security Council.
