Theresa May did also ask for the Russia government to help the UK understand the situation.

This is because according to Theresa May the nerve agent poisoning can only mean Russia directly attacked an individual they saw as an enemy or the government allowed the nerve agent to fall in wrong hands.

Russia so far have seemed disinterested in the issue and in addressing the UK Parliament today May stated that it only means the Russian government have a hand in the Skripals attempted murder.
