UK Prepares Kremlin Extradition Request for Two Russian Suspects in Novichok Poisonings

UK Prepares Kremlin Extradition Request for Two Russian Suspects in Novichok Poisonings”

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.

It said police and intelligence agents had identified two Russians believed to have carried out the attack on former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in March.

They were found slumped unconscious on a park bench and spent weeks in hospital before they were finally released.

The request will inflame the current diplomatic row Russian Federation. "They joined the movement and actions of two Russians from their entry to the United Kingdom prior to their departure", - said in the message.

Russian Federation has angrily rejected any involvement, plunging diplomatic relations into crisis.

The request seems certain to be rejected by Russian Federation, and could further inflame the diplomatic row between the two companies. The Russian constitution prevents the extradition of Russian citizens to another state.

In 2007, after Russian ex-spy Alexander Litvinenko was murdered with polonium in London, Moscow refused Britain's request to extradite two Russian suspects in the case. One died days afterwards.

Russian Federation retaliated by expelling an equal number of Western diplomats.

An unnamed government source told The Guardian: "The CPS has been asked to prepare extradition requests and we understand they are ready to go". Moscow has repeatedly denied any involvement and accused the British intelligence agencies of staging the attack to stoke anti-Russian hysteria.

Mr Rowley, like the Skripals, 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.
