A certain Sergey Fedotov flew to the UK with Petrov and Boshirov, and left the country with them on the day of the Skripals were poisoned.

The third suspect, Sergey Fedotov, 45, may soon become a person of interest in the case of poisoning of the former GRU officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia. He arrived in the UK on the same day as the other two suspects – Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov – but on a different flight. All three flew back together on the day when the Skripals were poisoned, Fontanka reports.

The publication found that Fedotov, like Petrov and Boshirov, has a 64-series passport with similar numbers, differing only in two digits. Petrov and Boshirov moved across the UK together, Fedotov, however, was alone. Before poisoning the Skripals, Fedotov came to London in March 2016, March 2017 and March 2018, and was also in Prague, Kiev, Milan and Geneva. Fedotov traveled to the Czech Republic at the same time as Petrov.
