UK wants nerve agent poisoning suspects extradited

Britain intends to request the extradition of two Russian agents believed to have been involved in the Novichok poisoning of a Russian former double agent and his daughter in England earlier this year, according to the Guardian newspaper.

The move comes after months of investigation by police officers and intelligence agencies.

The Times reports said that an extradition application would reignite a diplomatic row with the Russian government who have denied any state involvement in the novichok attack in Salisbury.

The request will reignite the simmering diplomatic row with Russian Federation, which is certain to reject it, prompting another round of tit-for-tat diplomatic expulsions.

Britain's Press Association news agency reported last month that police had identified two Russian suspects in the Salisbury attack on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, but there has been no official confirmation of that report either.

An unnamed government source told The Guardian: "The CPS has been asked to prepare extradition requests and we understand they are ready to go".

The Crown Prosecution Service prepared the extradition request and has completed the process for filing, the sources said.

The pair were poisoned by Novichok, a military-grade nerve agent developed by the Soviet Union during the Cold War, in the southwestern English city of Salisbury.

Woods has partnered a variety of players over the years, including Furyk four times at the 2006 Ryder Cup in Ireland. Woods, as a vice captain, would recuse himself from any discussions about his viability as a player, Furyk said.


Dawn Sturgess and Charlie Rowley were subsequently.

They have pieced together the movements of the two Russians, from their entry into the United Kingdom through to their departure, according to the Guardian.

British officials blamed Russian Federation for the attack, but the Kremlin denied any involvement. Later, Sturgess died in the hospital, the other victims were discharged after treatment.

In 2007, Putin rejected a similar extradition request for two Russians tied to the high-profile 2006 assassination of former FSB officer Alexander Litvinenko.
