Ex-colonel of Russia’s Main Intelligence Agency of Sergey Skripal and his daughter, poisoned in the center of Salisbury town in the evening of March 4, are still struggling for life in the intensive care unit of the local hospital. The British special services suppose that Skripals were poisoned by his ex-colleague Andrey Lugovoy, who acted on orders from Moscow.
The whole case turned out to be high-profile. The British media call the poisoning 'Litvinenko-2', referring to the poisoning of ex-FSB agent Aleksandr Litvinenko in 2006. British PM Theresa May announced that 23 Russian diplomats will be sent off from the UK due to the attack on Skripal. Foreign Minister Boris Johnson added that the leading Russian officials and members of the royal family are not going to visit Russia for FIFA World Cup matches. Johnson also said that the government considers the option to ban the national football team from the competition.
