Foul play suspected in death of wife of poisoned Russian spy

Foul play suspected in death of wife of poisoned Russian spy

Fire officers in protective hazmat suits were seen pinning down the tent this afternoon.

Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said: "Our armed forces have stepped up to support the police in their investigation in Salisbury, building on the vital expertise and information already provided by our world-renowned scientists from the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory at Porton Down".

According to the headstone, Mr Skripal's wife Liudmila died on October 23, 2012 at the age of 59. His son Alexander, 43, died a year ago. He then added that those who seek to commit treason may incur heart attacks, vehicle accidents, strokes, and suicide, leading one to believe that such medical occurrences were the result toxic substances originating from the Russian government. But suspicions are pointing to Russian Federation.

Investigators have been summoned for emergency talks on the crisis in Salisbury, where the fallout from a suspected nerve agent attack continues to widen. The 180 military personnel dispatched included the Royal Tank Regiment, Royal Marines, and chemical weapons specialists and bomb disposal units.

"What we see is only news reports. saying that if it is Russian Federation, then a response is going to be given that Russian Federation is going to remember forever".

Suspicion is mounting that Russian Federation carried out the attempt on their lives as an act of revenge against the former intelligence officer, who was convicted in 2006 of selling state secrets to MI6.

Mr Skripal served four years of a 13 year sentence in Russian Federation after he was caught spying for MI6 and was released as part of a spy exchange in 2010, then given refuge in the UK.

They remain in hospital in a "very serious" condition five days on.

Much attention was focused Friday on Skripal's red brick home. His condition doctors assessed as "serious but stable".

Yulia is thought to be one of the few members of the former spy's immediate family still alive after his wife and son died in recent years. "There may be some clues floating around in here", he said of Skripal's house.

The Home Secretary is also visiting the hospital which has been treating the victims.

The use of a nerve agent - with its last known use in a targeted attack against the Kim Jong-nam, the estranged brother of North Korea's leader - and Mr Skripal's past have suggested that the Russian state was involved in the attack.

Officials are still investigating how the nerve agent was administered and lawmakers are probing a possible Kremlin link to the incident. But analysts say that if it is rare, it could help to narrow down which laboratory it was made in.

The executive director of the Europe-wide police agency Europol, Rob Wainwright, described the use of a nerve agent to attack a former Russian spy in the United Kingdom as an "outrageous affront to our security in Europe and our way of life", but added that people should "exercise caution before jumping to any conclusions". "If you are able to identify it, you might be able to say, 'Oh, this obviously comes from Harrods department store.' If it was a chicken pie you were looking at, well, that could have come from a million different places", he said.

"This is very likely the Russians - you don't get nerve agent down the freezer aisle in Morrisons". 'They had an fantastic place, and an awesome house. British authorities say it's too soon to lay blame, but suspicions have fallen on Russian Federation.
