United Kingdom didn’t request extradition of Russian citizens in Salisbury case - embassy

Police officers stand on duty outside Sergei Skripal's home in Salisbury Britain

Ministers are preparing to submit an extradition request to Moscow for two suspects responsible for the Salisbury nerve agent attack, as the Government vowed to exert "international pressure" to force Russian Federation to "do the right thing".

Sergei Skripal, a former colonel in Russian military intelligence who betrayed dozens of agents to Britain's MI6 foreign spy service, and his daughter Yulia, were found unconscious on a public bench in Salisbury in early March.

The UK is reportedly planning to demand that Russian Federation extradites two suspects in the Salisbury nerve agent attack.

The decision, which the Russian government is expected to reject, is the culmination of an investigation by British authorities into the entry, activity and departure of the two Russian suspects.

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.

The Home Office said that as a matter of long-standing policy and practice, the United Kingdom would neither confirm nor deny an extradition request had been made or received until such time as an arrest has been made in relation to that request.

"This is Litvinenko all over again".

Since then, a British woman, Dawn Sturgess, died last month after coming across a small bottle containing Novichok near Salisbury where the Skripals were struck down.

Russian officials refused to hand over suspects in the murder case of Alexander Litvinenko.

Later Dawn Sturgess and her boyfriend Charlie Rowley were exposed to the chemical.

Police have said they believe the two incidents are related, theorizing that perpetrators first smeared the Novichok on the door of Sergei Skripal's house and discarded the container, which Rowley later picked up and gave to Sturgess, who sprayed it on her wrists.
