UK detectives, who were investigating the poisoning of former GRU officer Sergei Skripal, and his daughter Yulia, suspect Russia of involvement in two more deaths, reports The Sunday Times. 

According to the outlet, the investigators found out that Russian agents of the GRU were in the UK when other suspicious deaths occurred.

In particular, we are talking about businessman Oleksandr Perepilichny, who died in 2012 during a morning jog (traces of poison were found in his stomach), as well as another businessman – Scot Young, who fell out the window of his apartment in London.

As it was reported earlier, one of the suspects of poisoning Sergey Skripal in British Salisbury, Russian Ruslan Boshirov turned out to be Anatoliy Chepiga, the Colonel of the Main Intelligence Directorate of Russia (GRU). 

In 2014, Russian President Vladimir Putin awarded him the title of Hero of Russia for his participation in the 'peacekeeping mission,' which, The Insider assumes, could probably be the armed conflict in Eastern Ukraine. 

Crown Prosecution Service of the U.K. called the names of the suspects in the poisoning of the ex-GRU officer Sergey Skripal and his daughter Yulia. The police suspect Russians Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov. They are accused of the poisoning of Skripals, a police officer who participated in the investigation, and two U.K. citizens in Amesbury. 

Later it was reported that there could be four more suspects in the Skripal case, apart from Aleksandr Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, whose names were revealed by the British counter-intelligence. Theresa May, British PM, stated that Russia was responsible for the poisoning, and the investigation has confirmed the use of the Novichok nerve agent, produced in Russia.
