Salisbury poisonings| A 3rd man has charged in connection with Novichok attack

A third Russian is accused of being involved in the 2018 Salisbury poisoning, which left three people seriously ill and one dead.

Security sources believe that Denis Sergeyev was the commander on the ground in the Novochok attack on former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

Don Sturges died of poisoning and a police officer was seriously injured.

Police confirmed that they believed the suspects in the case belonged to a team from Russia’s military intelligence service, GRU.

Sergio is believed to be a senior member of the team and is involved in other covert activities across Europe.

The Crown Prosecution Service has now authorized the charges, but the accused cannot be formally charged until they are arrested.

All three suspects are believed to be in Russia.

Nick Price, head of the Special Crimes and Counterterrorism Division at the CPS, said there was “enough evidence to provide a realistic possibility” and that it was in the public interest to charge Sergio.

He said prosecutors were working with police to bring the attackers to justice “wherever possible” but that Russia had made it clear that it would not extradite its citizens.

Home Secretary Priti Patel told the House of Commons that if any suspects traveled outside Russia, the UK would do everything possible to detain and extradite them and would be “tireless in seeking justice”.

He described the poisoning as a “terrible incident” that shook the country and rallied our allies, but said it was not the first time Russia had carried out “a brutal attack on Britain”. The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that Alexander Litvinenko was assassinated.

Analysis| How does Britain hope that the exhibition will stop Russia?

None of Salisbury’s three defendants are likely to ever face a British court. Russia has consistently denied any involvement and said it would not extradite its citizens.

After the assassination of Alexander Litvinenko in 2006, the British authorities faced the same problem.

But there are other reasons why these investigations are important. After Litvinenko, the British government’s response was seen as weak and declining so that much could be done to respond and stop Russia.

He now hopes that public accusations in support of the evidence will help increase international pressure on Moscow and encourage other states to investigate.

This year, revelations about the GRU’s alleged role in the Czech bombings drove out diplomats who were thought to be secret spies.

The United Kingdom and its allies have responded to Salisbury’s deportation, and it is hoped that the showdown and retaliation will affect and deter Russia’s ability to carry out such operations abroad.

On March 2, 2018, the alleged GRU hit team arrived in the UK.

Two men, Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Busherov, arrived at Gatwick Airport in the afternoon. Police have now confirmed for the first time their real names, Anatoly Chepiga and Alexander Meshkin.

A third man, Denis Sergio, using the name Sergei Fedotov, arrived at Heathrow Airport earlier in the day at 11:00 GMT.

Sergei Fedotov’s arrival at Heathrow was captured on security cameras.

Chipiga and Meshkin traveled to Salisbury on Sunday, March 4, allegedly to put Novichok, a military-grade nerve agent, on the front door handle of former GRU officer Sergei Skripal.

He and his daughter became seriously ill, as did Nick Bailey, then a police officer.

Sergio stayed in London all the time before leaving for Moscow at 13:45, he changed his plans late. The other two left at 22:30 in the ensuing battle.

Police say they now have evidence that the men were working as a team and that the three met on several occasions in London this weekend.

On some occasions, it was indoors, on others it was in the open air – although the police will not say exactly where it is.

Sergei Skripal, 66, and his 33-year-old daughter Yulia were found unconscious but both survived the attack.

Sergio’s character and identity were first revealed by investigative site Belling Kate in February 2019, and some of his movements and phone contacts were detailed in a joint investigation with the BBC, including Paddington, Oxford Circus and Pushto. Its proximity to

But police are working to gather evidence of his role, a process called “challenging” but ultimately led to today’s announcement.

“As always, we are committed to bringing those responsible to justice,” said Dan Hayden, assistant commissioner of the Metropolitan Police and senior national coordinator of counter-terrorism policing.

Authoritative charges against the three men include conspiracy to commit murder, attempted murder, severe bodily harm and use and possession of chemical weapons.

Chepiga and Meshkin appeared on Russian TV after being identified in 2018 and said they had gone to the city only as tourists to see the church. Russia has always refused to intervene.

Traces of Novichok were found in the hotel rooms of Chipiga and Meshkin, although none of them were found in Sergio’s use.

Police say the perfume bottle could potentially kill thousands.

But there are significant flaws in the investigation, including how Novochok came to the UK and its connection between its use in March and its discovery in a perfume bottle lost in Amesbury in June.

Don Sturgess died a few days after spraying some of the contents of the bottle on himself.

The pre-death hearing, chaired by former High Court judge Baroness Hallett, is set to resume this week.

Don Sturges died after falling into Charlie Rowley’s flat in Amesbury, near Salisbury.

Police are asking the public to contact if they have more details about Sergeev movements in London or a bottle of perfume. Salisbury

If Sergei and two other suspects leave Russia, British authorities will notify Interpol of their arrest. Salisbury

“We now have evidence linking them to GRU,” Mr Hayden said. “All three are dangerous people.”

Intelligence also connects Sergeev and the team through covert activities across Europe. Salisbury
