Investigators in hazmat suits respond to the 2018 Salisbury novichok attack

The UK has charged a third Russian spy over the 2018 Salisbury novichok attack that targeted Sergueï Skripal.

Denis Sergueïev, who travelled to the UK under the alias Sergey Fedotov, is understood to have directed the two GRU agents who carried out the poisoning.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) on Tuesday authorised the same charges against him as were levelled at Alexander Petrov, alias Alexander Mishkin, and Ruslan Boshirov, alias Anatoliy Chepiga.

Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Dean Haydon told a press conference the trio “operated as a small team” to “kill people in this country”.

Former Russian military officer Mr Skripal and his daughter Yulia were lucky to escape with their lives after exposure to the poison.

Dawn Sturgess died from exposure to novichok and her partner Charlie Rowley continues to suffer from medical issues after the incident. Police officer Nick Bailey was forced to quite the force after coming into contact with the nerve agent.

A third Russian spy has been charged with involvement in the 2018 Salisbury novichok attack.

Denis Sergueïev, qui a voyagé au Royaume-Uni sous le pseudonyme de Sergey Fedotov, is believed to have commanded the two GRU agents who carried out the poisoning from London.

He flew from Moscow to Heathrow Airport on 2 Mars 2018, arriving around four hours before his colleagues, and stayed at a hotel in Paddington for two nights.
