Novichok Attack The Suspects – President Putin says the suspects are civilians not criminals. They told their own story saying they were only tourists visiting Salisbury.


In an interview with RT (Russian English speaking satellite channel) they spoke of visiting Salisbury cathedral.  This to admire the cathedral’s spire and bell.  Is this what you reckon happened?  The two are not believed here or even in Russia. They are in deep water. But nothing likely to happen while they are back home. We may never see them again.  

This is the British side of the story:

Planes and trains got Dr Alexander Mishkin and Col Anatoly Chepiga to Salisbury. Their names revealed by Bellingcat the investigative website and believed connected with Russian Intelligence. The two arrived as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov and suspects in poisoning of Sergei Skripal and daughter Yulia who were found slumped on bench March 4.  They survived the incident.  

Suspects captured on CCTV after spending 48 hours in the UK.  They arrived at Gatwick March 2 and left from Heathrow for Moscow March 4.  It is reported false passports and identity papers used.

Watch their movements.  Police say they viewed thousands of hours of video before putting together the pictures they found of the two suspects. An incredible job.

Prime Minister Theresa May revealed their names in a statement in the House of Commons.  Police confirmed that Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov were wanted for questioning.

PM said the police had hard evidence and that the security services suggested the operation was authorised at senior level of the Russian State.  Russia is denying involvement in the whole affair.

A security source said the suspects acted recklessly in the way they discarded the Novichok.  Police described their actions as brazen.

Local resident Charlie Rowley found the perfume bottle. He gave it to his girlfriend Dawn Sturgess.  Dawn subsequently died from the poison in the container.

The issue is with the United Nations Security Council. 


Apparently, MPs were shocked when they heard the names being announced.  Is this how you felt? Was it a surprise?  Were you expecting to hear this in the House of Commons?  We now  have different names for the suspects. What do you think of this?  Are we getting closer to the true identities?  Will they face a court hearing?
