Russian citizens Aleksandr Petrov and Ruslan Boshyrov, the suspects in the case of poisoning of the Skripals in Salisbury, were previously arrested in the Netherlands. This is mentioned in the joint investigation by The Insider and Bellingcat. 

The Insider marked that the two visited the Netherlands in April 2016, when the Dutch held a referndum on the EU-Ukraine Association in Ukraine. 

'Sources in the Dutch law enforcement agencies told The Insider and Bellingcat, without specifying the actual dates, that Betrov and Boshyrov were earlier arrested in the Netherlands', the story says. 

The investigators surmised that only one such episode was highlighted in the press. In spring 2018, the prosecutor's office of the Netherlands detained two Russians as they headed to a lab in Spitz, Switzerland; it conducts investigations into chemical attacks in Syria and the poisoning of the Skripals. The men carried tools used to hack the computer networks. The investigation also found that they broke into the network of WADA.
