In the Federation Council commented on the data Skrobala about moving to New Zealand

The first Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Vladimir dzhabarov told "Moscow speaking" said that it did not believe the reports that Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia moved to New Zealand.

He suggested that it is a rude legend, because Skrypalia "long time no show", and Sergei has not seen since the poisoning. Also dzhabarov recalled that his daughter Yulia also have not shown.

"I think that the legend that they have changed the names and they responded to a residence in New Zealand, does not hold water," explained the Senator, noting that not everyone wants to check whether Skrypali live there.

In addition, he recalled that British intelligence agencies feel at home there, as the New Zealand part of the Commonwealth.

"I think that's likely, unfortunately, they would just have to die, and British intelligence carefully hide it, but sooner or later all will be known because Skripal 92-year-old or even more years mom, Skripal relatives and about it, neither hearing nor the spirit no?" — said dzhabarov.

He noted that it could be bad campaign British intelligence, who are now trying to cover their tracks, hiding the father and daughter from the public.

"In the best case he's hiding somewhere in the UK, well, at worst I do not exclude any variant of the negative", — concluded the Senator.

Earlier edition of the Sunday Times, citing government sources in the UK reported that ex-GRU officer Sergey Skripal, along with her daughter Julia went to live in New Zealand. They, as the media, were given new names and support to start a new life.

Niece Skripal Victoria expressed the view that such reports are a red herring. She believes that they are still held in Porton Down.

The fourth of March 2018 in the British city of Salisbury was poisoned ex-GRU officer Sergey Skripal, who was convicted in Russia for treason, and his daughter Julia. This incident provoked an international scandal. London blamed it on Moscow.

Russia proposed to conduct a joint investigation, but Britain ignored this initiative. The foreign Ministry has accused the former Prime Minister of great Britain Teresa may in a lie: she claimed that the poison was manufactured in Russia, but in the lab that conducted the investigation, denied it.

Later London showed photos of two "suspects" in the poisoning, claiming that they are officers of the GRU. However, in interview to the editor of Sputnik and RT Margarita Simonyan they said that he visited Britain as tourists and not connected with special services.
