London suspects Russian military intelligence agency of Skripals poisoning
The British authorities put forward a new theory.
The UK police suspect Russian special services, namely, the Main Intelligence Directorate (abbreviated GRU) of involvement in the poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, The New York Times reported citing sources.
According to the publication, Scotland Yard is "closing in on identifying the individuals" that carried out the operation, the newspaper was told by British and American officials who preferred to remain anonymous.
At the end of last week, the US accused 12 GRU officials of interference in the country’s elections. The article pointed out that the UK investigators assume that the same military intelligence might have been involved in the Salisbury incident, while other services could have also been complicit in the poisoning. The investigation is now at the final stage.
To recap: Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious in a park in Salisbury, UK, in March. A few days later, British Prime Minister Theresa May made a speech saying both of them had been poisoned with a USSR-created nerve agent called Novichok. She concluded that Moscow must have been involved in the incident.
