London must provide fingerprints of Skripal case suspects to Interpol - diplomat

Russian suspects

Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, who were formally accused of attempting to murder former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury, are seen in an image handed out by the Metropolitan Police in London, Britain September 5, 2018.

Britain pointed the finger at Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday for a nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy in England - a charge that Moscow rejected as "unacceptable".

Prime Minister Theresa May said the use of a chemical weapon in the city of Salisbury, which left a British woman dead and four people, including Skripal and his daughter, seriously ill, was carried out by officers of the GRU intelligence service and nearly certainly approved "at a senior level of the Russian state".

A European arrest warrant has been issued for the two Russians, British prosecutors said, but Britain will not ask Moscow to extradite them because Russia's constitution does not allow its citizens to be extradited.

Ben Wallace told the BBC that Putin and his government "controls, funds and directs" the military intelligence unit known as the GRU, which Britain believes used the Soviet-developed Novichok nerve agent to try to kill ex-Russian spy Skripal.

In a separate development, Mrs May revealed that a review by MI5 and police of 14 previous deaths in Britain alleged to have been linked to Russian Federation had concluded that there was no case for further investigation.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the names and images of Petrov and Boshirov "say nothing to us".

They are also accused of using a banned chemical weapon and causing grievous bodily harm with intent to Yulia Skripal and Bailey. "It was nearly certainly also approved outside the GRU at a senior level of the Russian state", the British Prime Minister said.

Russian defense and security analyst Pavel Felgenhauer said authorisation to attack the Skripals had also likely come "from the very top".

British Prime Minister Theresa May described the suspects as Russian military intelligence officers and alleged the March attack in Salisbury was approved by senior government officials in Moscow.

The Daily Telegraph newspaper, citing an unnamed security source, said the two men had posed as businessmen to obtain their visas from the British consulate in Saint Petersburg.

They spent weeks critically ill in hospital but have since been discharged.

But he added: "We don't yet know where the suspects disposed of the Novichok they used to attack the door, where Dawn and Charlie got the bottle that poisoned them, or if it is the same bottle used in both poisonings".

Britain charged two Russians with the murder of Litvinenko but both remain in Russia. Britain and dozens of other countries have kicked out Russian diplomats over the incident, and Moscow has responded tit-for-tat in the biggest diplomatic expulsions since the Cold War.

"Inside the box was a bottle and applicator", Basu said.

Viktoria Skripal also said that she doubts that Sergei Skripal is still alive because he has not communicated with the family since the poisoning.

Two Russian nationals have been named as suspects in the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

One of them, 44-year-old mother of three Dawn Sturgess, died on July 8.

The Skripals continue to be in an undisclosed location since their discharge from hospital after the attack. "She needs one phone call from her son", said Victoria Skripal at an emotional news conference in Russian Federation.
