Russian Flag Unfurled on Salisbury Cathedral in UK

Workmen removed the flag early on Sunday from scaffolding on the side of Salisbury Cathedral.

It was spotted by workers early on Sunday but has since been removed.

The move was labelled a "stupid stunt" by John Glen, the city's MP.

A Russian flag has been spotted on Salisbury Cathedral in England, in an apparent stunt making light of the poisoning of former KGB agent Sergei Skripal in the city a year ago. A woman in nearby Amesbury who was also exposed to it later died.

The flag was quickly pulled down, and some locals were in no doubt about their interpretation of the freakish incident, taking to Twitter to denounce the Russian tricolor as an act of extreme disrespect to Salisbury.

"What a dumb stunt - mocking the intense events sadly skilled in Salisbury ideal twelve months", he talked about.

The Dean of Salisbury, the Very Rev Nicholas Papadopulos, said: "This was a remarkably stupid thing to do and makes light [of] the huge personal tragedies involved, ..."

Ms Sturgess died in hospital on 8 July.

In an interview with the Guardian newspaper on Saturday her oldsters talked about that Ms Sturgess turned into the most productive exact victim of the poisonings.

United Kingdom claims that poisoning Sripala is Russian Federation, and the perpetrators of the crime - the officers of the GRU. British officials blamed their poisoning on Russian military intelligence but Moscow denied involvement.
