Britain Threatens Response If Russia Behind Spy Poisoning
« on: March 07, 2018, 12:26:07 AM »

Britain has threatened a "robust" response if it is proven that Russia is behind the apparent attempted killing of a former double agent.

Sergei Skripal and his daughter were found collapsed in their home town in southern England Sunday, showing symptoms of poisoning.

Skripal, a former Russian agent and army colonel, confessed to sharing information on Russian spies in Europe with British intelligence agencies, in return for $100,000. A Moscow court sentenced him to 13 years in jail in 2006. He was released as part of a spy swap with the United States in 2010 and settled in Britain.

Last Sunday, he and his daughter, Yulia, were found collapsed on a park bench in the southern city of Salisbury. Jamie Paine, who called emergency services, told reporters that the pair appeared severely ill.

“Her eyes were just completely white. They were wide open, but just white and frothing at the mouth. Then the man went stiff. His arms stopped moving, but he's still looking dead straight,” Paine said.

British counterterror police are now leading the investigation. They have sealed off locations that Skripal and his daughter are believed to have visited Sunday, and are reportedly examining security video, which shows a man and a woman walking close to the scene.

The British government said it is keeping an open mind about the investigation. But with suspicions growing of Russian involvement, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson offered this warning Tuesday.

Police outside an Italian restaurant in Salisbury, England, March 6, 2018, near where former Russian spy double agent Sergei Skripal and his companion were found critically ill Sunday following exposure to an "unknown substance." Skripal, 66, and unidentified woman companion are being treated in hospital, after they were found unconscious on a park bench in Salisbury.
