The British police have opened a murder investigation after woman exposed to Novichoknerve agent in Wiltshire County died this Sunday.
A Kremlin spokesman said linking Russian Federation to the poisonings would be "absurd".
The woman, identified by police as Dawn Sturgess, 44, from Durrington was thought to have handled a "contaminated item" at Salisbury on 29 June before falling ill.
Despite the lack of evidence and deepening mystery many have been quick to point the finger at Russian Federation and brand the Amesbury poisoning "collateral damage".
Three other men who were also in the van that day have been screened as a precaution, but are not showing any signs of having been exposed to novichok, Mr Basu said.

MailOnline has obtained CCTV of Mr Rowley (left), who is said to be on the brink of death, as it was revealed his girlfriend Dawn Sturgess, 44, (right) passed away in Salisbury last night.
Basu called the death of Sturgess "shocking and tragic news".
"The simple reality is that Russian Federation has committed an attack on British soil which has seen the death of a British citizen", Williamson said.
Though it has not been established whether this incident is linked to the attack on the Skripals, Mr Basu said that theory was the "main line of inquiry". Police say they don't think Sturgess and Rowley visited any of the locations decontaminated after the Skripals' poisoning.
Public Health England said the risk to the public is low but advised against picking up "needles, syringes or unusual containers".
A representative from Salisbury district hospital said staff "worked tirelessly to save Dawn".
But, they say, "it is important that the investigation is led by the evidence available and the facts alone".
"Because the nerve agents compromise nerve and muscle function, their effects are widespread and where deaths occur these are usually due to either respiratory or circulatory failure, or both", he said.
