United Kingdom charges 2 Russian men in nerve agent poisoning of former spy

Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov who are formally accused of attempting to murder former Russian intelligence officer Se

Ms. May told the House of Commons on Wednesday that a pair of officers from the Russian army's intelligence directorate, known as the GRU, used a nerve agent called Novichok to poison Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, at Mr. Skripal's home in Salisbury.

While UK officials have blamed the Russian government for the poisoning, Basu refused to disclose whether police believed the suspects worked for Russia's intelligence services, saying that "this was a sophisticated attack across borders".

Although Mrs May did not explicitly blame the Kremlin for authorising the attempted assassination, senior Conservatives directly accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of approving the operation.

Russian nationals, Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, have today been charged with the nerve agent attack on the former spy and his daughter according to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

The men arrived in London from Moscow on March 2 and stayed at a London hotel before travelling to Salisbury the next day to scout out the city, police said.

A counterfeit perfume bottle, a basic east London hotel and two burly Russians likely traveling under aliases: just some of the unprecedented details revealed by British authorities Wednesday of how they believe the Novichok poisonings in Salisbury, southern England, were carried out.

The CPS said it will not be applying to Russian Federation for the extradition of the two men, but a European Arrest Warrant has been obtained.

Mr Morrison said the heinous Novichok nerve agent attack was in clear and direct violation of worldwide law. He was hospitalized and his girlfriend, Dawn Sturgess, 44, died after being exposed to the contents.

I also think he can improve in the defensive phase. [Bournemouth] are very organised defensively, and defended very well. Chelsea FC took the lead in the 72nd minute in west London thanks to Pedro Rodriguez's finish to put the Blues ahead.

Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu of London's Metropolitan Police - Britain's top counter-terrorism officer - said the two suspects were believed to be in their 40s. Immediately after application, they returned to London and boarded a flight back to Russian Federation at 10.30 p.m.

Her boyfriend Charlie Rowley also became seriously ill during that incident, and police officer Nicholas Bailey was hospitalised by exposure to the Skripals at the time of the first incident.

Russia denies involvement, and a diplomatic dispute over the case has led to sanctions and the expulsion of more than 150 Russian diplomats from two dozen Western countries.

However, he said only that the "Russian government must give a full account" of its use in the United Kingdom and did not refer to evidence that the attack was carried out by its agents.

Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov are being hunted in connection with the Salisbury Poisoning. Dawn Sturgess died in a hospital in July, while her partner, Charlie Rowley, later recovered.

A man found the nerve agent in a perfume bottle and gave it to a woman who sprayed it on her wrist. The result, he said, was "a flawless cover for smuggling the weapon into the country, and a ideal delivery method for the attack against the Skripal's front door".

A Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman accuses Britain of "manipulating information".

May promised new action to combat the GRU and Russian Federation more effectively.

He said police continue to liaise with the CPS regarding the poisoning of Ms Sturgess and Mr Rowley.
