Two years after Salisbury tragedy UK asks for information

British counterterrorism police have asked for more information about the tragedy that nearly killed Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury.

It happened on 4 March 2018 in Salisbury. Russian-born double agent Mr Skripal and his daughter Yulia were targeted with the nerve agent Novichok. They were found unconscious on a park bench – and trails of a nerve agent were littered across the city.

Britain blames the 2018 tragedy on two Russian security service officers – Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov – who allegedly entered the United Kingdom using false passports and smeared nerve agent on the front door handle of Sergei Skripal’s house.

Russia has denied any involvement in the attack. The specified incident resulted in the largest ever expulsion of diplomats between Western powers and Russia.

UK counterterrorism police stated that the two suspects Russians who entered Britain using the names Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov were still wanted. But they said they could not piece together the full timeline of the attack.

“We continue to urge anyone who has information that they have not yet passed to police to do so,” they said in a statement. “In particular, we are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen the counterfeit Nina Ricci perfume box or bottle that was recovered from Charlie Rowley’s address in July 2018.”
