The request is sent in the case of poisoning “Newbie” in Salisbury.
The UK intends to submit a request to Moscow to extradite two Russians suspected in the attack scout Sergei Skripal and his daughter with a “Newbie”.
“This step came after several months of thorough investigations by hundreds of police officers and special services. They joined the movement and actions of two Russians from their entry to the UK prior to their departure,” – said in the message.
At the same time, the Guardian notes that Russia “will undoubtedly deny” the UK extradition, and the request may cause a new diplomatic row between London and Moscow.
