Poison allegedly sprayed with mini-drone on Skripal and his daughter
The British law enforcers have a new lead.
The officers investigating into the circumstances of poisoning of former GRU Colonel Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in British Salisbury suggest that the poison might have been sprayed with a mini-drone on the victims. This is reported Daily Star referring to sources in the British intelligence service MI-5.
In particular, the investigation believes that the gadget could have ‘hovered’ in the air and spray the poison over the father and daughter when they were sitting on a park bench.
“This lead is likely because there are no witnesses,” the experts say. At the same time, according to the publication’s interlocutors, there is no doubt that the drone was sent by Russian special services. “We know that the Russians had experimented with armed miniature unmanned aerial vehicles,” they note.
To recall, the police appealed to the local residents asking whether they saw Skripal’s car on March 4, i.e. on the day of poisoning. A snapshot of the car is published on the official website of the British police.
Earlier, British Prime Minister Teresa May said that London considers Russia to be involved in the incident, since it was established that Skripal and his daughter were poisoned by Novichok gas, which was created back in the USSR.
