United Kingdom 'ready to ask Russian Federation to extradite suspects in Novichok poisoning'

The UK is poised to ask Russian Federation to extradite suspects over the nerve agent poisoning in Salisbury, according to reports.

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

Theresa May has been consistent in pointing the finger of blame at Moscow for the poisoning of the Skripals using Novichok, a military-grade nerve agent developed by the former Soviet Union.

United Kingdom intelligence chiefs blamed Russian Federation for the attack, but Moscow denies all responsibility.

The Guardian reported that an investigation by hundreds of British police and intelligence officers pieced together the movements of the two Russians, from their entry into Britain through their departure.

And the query would worsen the diplomatic row between Britain and Russian Federation.

Diplomatic relations deteriorated in the wake of the Skripal case and could take a further downward turn if Russian Federation refuses to extradite the two people in question, a step it is unlikely to take.

According to the publication, the request for extradition has already been prepared and is going to be sent to Russian authorities in the nearest future. Moscow refused to extradite Russians in accordance with the Constitution.

"This is Litvinenko all over again". They were found unconscious on a public bench in Salisbury. Later, Sturgess died in the hospital, the other victims were discharged after treatment.

Russian Federation retaliated by expelling an equal number of Western diplomats.

British police believe the Novichok nerve agent used on Yulia and her former double agent father in March was the same chemical used to kill 44-year-old Dawn Sturgess and her partner Charlie Rowley in late June, about eight miles away. Rowley recovered but Sturgess died.

Police think the novichok was sprayed or smeared on their front doorknob with a perfume bottle.
