Nerve Agent Used on Ex-Russian Spy a 'Horror' Poison

Yulia Skripal Has Snubbed Moscow's Help After The Nerve Agent Attack

Skripal moved to Britain in a spy swap in 2010 and settled in Salisbury, and his daughter Yulia was visiting from Russian Federation when they were poisoned, possibly on his front door.

Russian Federation has charged that British officials are keeping Skripal's daughter in isolation.

Russian Federation has denied involvement in the poisoning incident. The British authorities explained their actions with fears about the unknown consequences of poisoning with the nerve agent "Novichok".

British police officers in protective suits and masks at the scene in Salisbury where former double-agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia were discovered after being attacked with a nerve-agent in March.

Russian Federation has strongly denied any involvement, and insists it has destroyed all of its chemical weapons.

Claiming that the substance used in the attack had been a Novichok-class nerve agent developed in the Soviet Union, London rushed to accuse Russian Federation of being involved in the incident.

There are several variants of Novichok, a binary weapon containing two less toxic chemicals that, when mixed, react to produce a poison several times more lethal than sarin or VX.




"The programme subsequently included investigation of ways of delivering nerve agents, including by application to door handles". Moscow rejected all of the United Kingdom's accusations, saying that a program aimed at developing such a substance had existed neither in the Soviet Union nor in Russian Federation. The name and structure of the identified toxic chemical are contained in the full classified report'.

Britain said that the A234 agent belonged to the family of Soviet-designed nerve agents dubbed Novichok.

But Mr Sedwill's letter suggested the nerve agent used was most likely to have been made at a laboratory in Shikhany, near Volgograd, a branch of the State Institute for Organic Chemistry and Technology.

Novichok is thought to have been developed to prevent detection and to circumvent global chemical weapons controls.

According to the embassy's maycommentary, "the case against Russian Federation is based on three elements: the identification of the chemical agent, far-fetched speculations and conclusions regarding the "operational experience" and "motive", as well as unverifiable 'intelligence'. There is no plausible alternative explanation", added Sir Mark.

The worldwide chemical weapons watchdog has said an analysis of samples gathered from Sergei Skripal, Yulia Skripal and detective sergeant Nick Bailey - the officer affected during the emergency response - confirmed the U.K.'s assessment of the incident.

In recent weeks, British authorities - along with roughly two dozen countries, including the US - have expelled scores of Russian diplomats in retaliation.
