Accusations Of Assassination Of Double Agent

Two Russians who have been accused of attempting to assassinate a former double agent with nerve gas in Salisbury, England earlier this year have publicly denied any involvement. The peculiar case, which has resulted in one death and three serious injuries, occurred earlier this year.

Sergei Skripal, a former double agent who worked for Britain as a double agent during the 90s and early 2000s, was poisoned along side his daughter with a deadly Soviet-era nerve toxin called Novichok. The attack occurred in March of this year.

While the two survived the attack, two more bystanders in the same town were also poisoned. After Dawn Sturgess and Charlie Rowly discovered a perfume bottle containing the nerve toxin, both became seriously ill and Sturgess died several days later because of her exposure. British police released information this week about the accused men, who are seen on camera in several instances in Salisbury.

Vladimir Putin has publicly denied their involvement in the attack, stating that, after tracking down the men that, “there is nothing particularly special or criminal here.” The two accused of the attack, Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, went on television to also deny their involvement, stating they were in Salisbury as tourists.

The two were interview on the state-funded channel RT, and detailed their claims of innocents, stating they were not Russian agents but worked as businessmen in sports nutrition. However, British intelligence has claimed to thoroughly investigate their movements, which were consistent with the attack, and also discovered trace elements of the Novichuk gas in a hotel room they stayed in.
