United Kingdom to seek extradition of Russians in Skripal case: Guardian

The UK government is poised to ask Russian Federation to extradite two people suspected of carrying out the nerve agent attack against Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury.

The report comes after it was revealed last month that investigators believed they had identified the suspected perpetrators of the attack and were sure they were Russian.

Russia's embassy in London says they have not yet received any extradition requests over allegations any of its citizens were involved in the novichok poisonings.

A CPS spokeswoman told Metro it was aware of the Guardian's report but had no comment to make.

We will remind, the British police were able to establish two suspects in the poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia.

The move was reciprocated by Moscow.

The theories he has promoted include that the September 11 , 2001 attacks on NY and Washington were staged by the USA government. Note that Apple didn't just zap single offending podcasts, but rather the listings for whole podcast titles.

The newspaper, citing unnamed government and security sources, said on August 6 that United Kingdom prosecutors had completed an extradition request and it is ready for submission.

The Times notes that the request for extradition of Russians in the case of the poisoning is part of a plan for the resumption of pressure on the Kremlin in connection with the attack involving nerve agents "Beginner".

"This is Litvinenko all over again". One died days afterwards.

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.

Mr Rowley recovered from the attack but Ms Sturgess, his partner, died.

Police have said they believe the two incidents are related, theorizing that perpetrators first smeared the Novichok on the door of Sergei Skripal's house and discarded the container, which Rowley later picked up and gave to Sturgess, who sprayed it on her wrists. And the query would worsen the diplomatic row between Britain and Russian Federation.
