British law enforcement officers have two photos taken by the CCTV.
The staff of Scotland Yard began to interview the embattled Russian oligarchs and entrepreneurs residing in London. This is reported by Rosbalt with reference to sources.
According to the publication, the law enforcers are interested in whether there have been any threats to the businessmen or offers to participate in some dubious event. According to one of the businessmen who wished to remain anonymous, Scotland Yard suspects that the poisoning of former Russian military intelligence officer Sergei Skripal could be organized with the support of one of the influential businessmen who was forced to live in London.
“I had a feeling that Scotland Yard has some information about possible persons involved in the incident, and checks it,” the source said.
Another source added that the British police have photos of two suspects, taken by security cameras. The photos were shown to the interlocutor of the publication – the law enforcement officers were interested in whether these people were familiar to him, the source said.
It is to be recalled that former military intelligence Colonel Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned in Salisbury on March 4. At the moment, they are in critical condition in intensive care. The British authorities suspect that Russia is behind the poisoning.
The situation on international markets is worsening because of trade wars and protectionist policies. However, Dmitry Medvedev noted that the Government expects the expansion of the Russian economy until 2024.
