GPS tracking on the mobile phones of the former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia had been off for four hours.

The Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia disabled GPS tracking on their mobile phones during their conversation in Salisbury before they got poisoned, according to The Times. Skripal and his daughter could not be reached for four hours and could have had a secret meeting, the investigation believes.

The former double spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned in Salisbury on March 4. The UK blames Russia for the poisoning. The Russian side demanded access to the investigation file, since Yulia Skripal is a Russian citizen. London refused.

There are two theories so far. According to one of them, Yulia brought the poison from Moscow. The other theory is that the poisoning could have been done through the ventilation system of Skripal’s BMW.

The poisoning incident triggered a crisis in Moscow-London relations. The UK expelled 23 Russian diplomats. Russia reacted by ousting 23 officials of the British Embassy, calling the accusations "unsubstantiated" and "provocative."
