“Parts of the Wiltshire city have been locked behind police cordons for more than two months as officers and soldiers worked to gather evidence and clean up areas affected by the Novichok nerve agent. The only site that still needs to be closed off for the police is the family home in Salisbury,” the message says.
Ex-colonel of Russia’s GRU, Chief Intelligence Department, Sergey Skripal and his daughter Yulia, 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.
Supporting Britain, more than 30 states, including Ukraine, announced the expulsion of Russian diplomats as a reaction to the incident in Salisbury. Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry stated that 13 Russian diplomats, who were expelled, are the representatives of Russian special service.
