The U.K. can declare a 45-year-old Sergiy Fedotov a suspect in the poisoning of ex-GRU officer Sergey Skripal and his daughter Yulia, as Russian news agency Fontanka reports.

The media claim that in January-February 2014 Fedotov went to the Czech Republic together with the other two suspects. Besides, he visited London three times – in Mach 2016, March 2017, and March 2018.

The last trip of “the third suspect” to London took place on March 2. Anatoliy Chepiha and Oleksandr Myshkin went there as well, but on a different flight. The news agency reports that Fedotov left London on the day when Skripals were poisoned on one flight with the other two suspects.

Earlier, Telegraph reported on the third suspect in the Skripal’s case, but this information was not officially confirmed.

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.
