The UK has accused 2 alleged Russian intelligence officers of trying to murder a spy in England with nerve agent
London Metropolitan Police
The UK is charging two Russian men identified as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov over the poisoning of a former Russian spy this March.
Prime Minister Theresa May said the two men are officers from Russia’s intelligence services, also known as the GRU.
She said that authorisation for the attack “almost certainly” came from the senior levels of the Russian government.
Sergei Skripal, the former spy, and his daughter collapsed in Salisbury after being exposed to novichok, a military-grade nerve agent developed in the Soviet Union during the Cold War.
Police released a detailed description of the suspects’ whereabouts in the runup to the attack, which suggest that the men were in the UK for three days to carry it out.
