United Kingdom ‘to ask Russian Federation to give up poisoning suspects’

BRITAIN is to ask Moscow to extradite two Russians suspected of being behind the Salisbury novichok poisonings, according to reports.

The British investigation earlier reported that two of the alleged poisoner had to flee to Russian Federation.

The Times newspaper alleged in reports that detectives from the Metropolitan Police in London are understood to be confident they have identified the would-be assassins who used a perfume bottle containing the deadly poison novichok in their unsuccessful attempt to kill Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, aged 33, in March.

London blamed Russian Federation of being behind the Skripal attacks in the weeks after the incident, a charge Russian Federation has categorically denied.

An investigation by hundreds of British police and intelligence officers have pieced together the movements of the two Russians, from their entry into Britain through to their departure, the Guardian reported.

"This is Litvinenko all over again".

At the same time, the Guardian notes that Russian Federation "will undoubtedly deny" the United Kingdom extradition, and the request may cause a new diplomatic row between London and Moscow. "The police have managed to identify the people coming over and going back again", a Whitehall source said. They were found unconscious on a public bench in Salisbury.

In 2007, President Vladimir Putin rejected an extradition request for two Russians suspected of the assassination of the former FSB officer Alexander Litvinenko in London using radioactive polonium. The Russian constitution prevents the extradition of Russian citizens to another state. Later, Sturgess died in the hospital, the other victims were discharged after treatment.

The request will inflame the current diplomatic row Russian Federation.

They believe the bottle was then dropped somewhere in the city, where Charlie Rowley picked it up and gave it to his partner Dawn Sturgess, who died after apparently spritzing it on her wrist.
