A house of Sergei Skripal, a pub and a restaurant he visited along with his daughter on the day when they suffered the nerve gas attack, will be taken down. Mail on Sunday reported that quoting a source inside a British security authority.
'Sergei Skripal’s house is expected to be demolished as a result of the contamination. This is thought to be more cost-effective than instigating an inch by inch search of the property for further traces of Novichok. The Zizzi Italian restaurant and The Mill public house which were both visited by the Skripals in the hours before they fell ill may also be knocked down', the story reads.
The structures will remain standing until autumn, the security agency said.
Earlier, MI6, the British secret intelligence, recommended that former GRU colonel Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia change identities and move the U.S. to avoid any new assassination attempts. This was decided after negotiations between MI6 and their counterpart from the CIA.
