United Kingdom prosecutors seek two Russians over Novichok poisoning

THERESA-MAY

Britain charged two Russians in absentia on Wednesday with the attempted murder of a former Russian spy and his daughter, and said the suspects were military intelligence officers nearly certainly acting on orders from high up in the Russian state.

Therefore, after 6 months of attacks the Prime Minister is pressing for the Kremlin to be hit by fresh global sanctions, after two Russian spies were named as suspects for Novichok attack in Salisbury.

The emergency session at the United Nations was called by Britain after prime minister Theresa May named two men from the GRU as suspects for the attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia and released footage from security cameras and passports to back up their claims.

"Just as the police investigation has enabled the CPS to bring charges against the two suspects, so the security and intelligence agencies have carried out their own investigations into the organisation behind this attack, " she said.

Two Russian nationals have been named as suspects in the attempted murder this year of a former Russian spy and his daughter in southern England, according to a report.

They are thought to have been using the names as aliases and are about 40.

Moscow accused the United Kingdom government of seeking to unleash anti-Russian hysteria on Thursday as Britain sought backing at the UN Security Council for its conclusion that members of the Russian military intelligence service were behind the nerve agent attack on a former spy.

Despite the link between the cases, no charges have yet been made over the subsequent poisonings after the Skripals. She said that she does not know the men suspected to be behind the poisoning.

Moscow has repeatedly denied claims that Russian Federation was behind the attempted assassination in March.

The Russian foreign ministry said Wednesday that it did not recognize the names Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov.

Britain has said it is not going to seek the men's extradition because Russian law does not allow for the extradition of its nationals to be tried overseas.

They then returned to London and flew back to Moscow that evening from Heathrow Airport.

Former Russian military intelligence colonel Sergei Skripal attends a hearing at the Moscow District Military Court in Moscow on August 9, 2006.

Wallace said his government would seek to "maintain the pressure" on Russian Federation.

Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told reporters Thursday that the accusations leveled against the Russian leader and the government were "unacceptable".

Her partner, Charlie Rowley, 48, was also treated in the same Salisbury hospital and later released.

He was hospitalised and his girlfriend Dawn Sturgess died after being exposed to the contents.

Police are still trying to determine where the bottle was between the Skripal poisoning in March and its discovery by Rowley on June 27.

The charges announced on Wednesday relate to the first incident, but Mr Basu said officers continue to liaise with the CPS regarding the poisoning of Mr Rowley and Ms Sturgess.

The men stayed at a hotel in London and travelled from Waterloo train station before being captured again on CCTV at Salisbury on March 4, the day the Skripals were attacked on March 4.

Skripal and his 33-year-old daughter Yulia were found unconscious on a bench in Salisbury, 145 kilometres southwest of London, on March 4.

In a special statement to the House of Commons, Prime Minister Theresa May revealed the two suspects flew into Britain to murder former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia Skripal who lived in the town of Salisbury.

Prosecutor Sue Hemming said Wednesday that the U.K.is not asking Moscow to extradite the men because Russian law forbids extradition of the country's citizens.
