The Congressmen wrote Trump a letter where they demand the imposition of the second sanctions package against Russia over an incident in Salisbury and explained that “non-response at Russia’s aggression is unacceptable and requires corrective actions”.
“We are deeply concerned that sanctions were not imposed against Russia in compliance with the U.S. legislation, which comes from the fact that Russia used chemical weapon against people who live in the United Kingdom. We urge you to impose additional sanctions against Russia to bring it to justice for such behavior,” the letter reads.
Sergey Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned in British Salisbury in March 2018. Theresa May, the then British PM, stated that Russia was responsible for that, and the investigation has confirmed the use of the Novichok nerve agent, produced in Russia.
Reportedly, the Crown Prosecution Service of the U.K. called the names of the suspects in the poisoning of 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.
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).
